Save the date: 'Global Research Council,' 27 -- 29 May 2013

The 2nd Annual Global Meeting of the Global Research Council (GRC) will take place from 27 to 29 May 2013 at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Berlin, Germany. The meeting will bring together the heads of about 70 science and research councils from around the world as well as high-ranking guests from science and research, science administration and research policy. Hosted jointly by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the National Council of Technological and Scientific Development (CNPq) of Brazil, it will be the largest meeting of its kind so far.

The topics of discussion will be open access to publications as the main paradigm of scientific communication in the following years as well as the responsibility of research funding agencies to ensure the integrity of the research they support. It is expected that participants will endorse an Ac-tion Plan on Open Access as well as a high-level Statement of Principles for Research Integrity. Both documents have been developed at a set of regional meetings held around the world between October and December 2012. An International Steering Committee was then asked to synthesize regional contributions into two high-level documents. Participants will also endorse the new statutes of the Global Research Council.

The outcomes of the meeting's discussions as well as the two endorsed documents will be presented at the press conference on 29 May 2013 at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Hu-manities (BBAW).

"The German Research Foundation is delighted to welcome the world of research and research funding to Berlin and is pleased to host this meeting together with our Brazilian partner organiza-tion", DFG-President Professor Peter Strohschneider points out: "We are honored to welcome so many high-ranking representatives from research funding, science administration and research policy and regard this enthusiastic participation as a clear demonstration that there is a huge interest to engage in an open exchange on the development of our science and research systems and the role of research funders in a globalized world. By cooperating across geographical, political or disciplinary borders and agreeing on the standards and guiding principles of research funding as well as its inde-pendence from political influence, participating organizations would take on a global responsibility for the future development of science and research systems, Strohschneider continues. "As DFG, we would also like to use this opportunity and draw the world's attention to our own standards and the German model of research funding which is based solely on criteria of scientific quality and free from political, economic, or other reasoning."
