The Einstein Foundation Award for Promoting Quality in Research aims to provide recognition and publicity for outstanding efforts that enhance the rigor, reliability, robustness, and transparency of research, and stimulate awareness and activities fostering research quality among scientists, institutions, funders, and politicians. To acknowledge the outstanding role early career researchers (ECRs) have in promoting research quality, ECRs will be invited to propose projects that foster research quality and value. Projects will be competitively selected for funding and internationally showcased.
This award is open to any researcher or group of researchers, organization, or institution. To be eligible for the Early Career Research Award, candidates must hold a doctorate or have equivalent research experience, and should have been an independent researcher for no longer than five years.
