Survey on sustainability and societal responsibility in scientific practice

Support the "Research in societal responsibility" project with your input.

Participate in a short survey on the topic "Research in societal responsibility". This survey is part of the research project LeNa-Shape, which tries to establish more sustainability and societal responsibility in scientific practice.

In the research project LeNa Shape (Research in societal responsibility - Design, Impact Analysis, Quality Assurance) Fraunhofer-Society, Max Planck Society, Leibniz Association and Helmholtz Association are working together to promote the long-term implementation of the concept "Research in societal responsibility" in the scientific community.

Marius Deckers from Fraunhofer UMSICHT is trying to measure psychological influencing factors (motivations, habits, etc.) regarding the implementation of this idea in research. For this purpose he has developed a questionnaire, for the evaluation of which he needs as large and representative a sample as possible. Everyone who is actively working in research is welcome to participate, no matter in which position. It takes about 12 to 15 minutes to fill out the questionnaire.

You can find the questionnaire here:
