Competence Map

The BME Competence Map provides a rich source of information about research expertise and achievements of the researchers and the research groups of the University.

The online database provides information about the researchers’ expertise, publications, projects, infrastructure and results in an easily-navigable format. The Map offers multiple types of search: among all you can look for research areas, Horizon Europe keywords or even for specific infrastructure. The search results lead to the Researcher and the Research Group Profile Pages that provide more information and the contact details.

  • academic and industry partners looking for collaborators

  • building Horizon Europe consortia (by using the Horizon Europe keywords search)

  • companies looking for specific infrastructure

  • PhD-students and early career researchers looking for mentors and supervisors (e.g. for MSCA grants)

  • external researchers looking for a research team to work with on a specific field.

Webinars

Guests: Borana Taraj, Senior Community and Project Manager, EARMA ERION and Mathieu van Kooten, Policy Officer, Erasmus University Rotterdam

Topic: Discussing research integrity is vital as it contributes to an open, safe, and inclusive research culture. We are going to present two ways of fostering research integrity practices within institutions. EARMA ERION is a network for research integrity professionals all over Europe. The Dilemma Game app, an online game has been developed by Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) to stimulate awareness of, and an open and critical discussion about integrity and professionalism in research.

Guest: Daniel Spichtinger, Open Science Specialist

Topic: Data Management Plans (DMPs) are at the heart of many research funder requirements for FAIR data management and open data. Our guest will first outline what the requirements in Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe are and then present the findings of a study that has reviewed the experience of Horizon 2020 beneficiaries with DMPs.

You can access Daniel’s article here: Data Management Plans in Horizon 2020: what beneficiaries think and what we can learn from their experience

Guests: Judit Fazekas-Paragh, Head of Education and Research Support
Department, University of Debrecen University and National Library and Ádám Száldobágyi, Data Steward, University of Debrecen University
and National Library

Topic: The global and European trends of Open Science changed rapidly in the past decades. We provide an insight to the Hungarian situation: how university libraries reacted and quickly began educating librarians to become key persons of the different aspects of the scholarly
communications. We will discuss what librarians do to raise awareness and keep their knowledge up-to-date regarding Open Science, also how repositories are supported by the operation of the Hungarian Open Repositories Working Group.

Guests: Eva Hnatkova, Open Science Coordinator at the National Library of Technology and University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague

Topic: Open Science is a new way of conducting research by opening up access to research data and results via new digital technologies and collaborative tools. Early-career researchers play an important role in the shift to Open Science, but many of them are still unaware of what Open Science is and how to practice it. So, we will discuss how we could support them.

Guests: Dr. Liise Lehtsalu, Research Support Officer, Eurac Research and Dr. Alberto Scotti, Post-Doctoral Researcher, Eurac Research

Topic: Eurac Research (Bolzano, Italy) has embarked on a deli-berate journey towards a culture of Open Science over the last 5 years. This webinar highlights the approaches adopted to engage, support, and award researchers for Open Science. We also hear the researcher’s perspective about motivations to practice Open Science.

Guest: Laure Fallou, Research officer at the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC)

Topic: A team of seismologists and social scientists gathered to set up a citizen seismology project in Haiti aiming at collecting seismic data and understanding the people’s risk perception and the usage they could make of low cost seismic sensors. We present how we engaged
with citizens and the collaboration between volunteers, geoscientists and social scientists.

You can access the presentation here: BME Horizon Hot Topics: oPEN Lab: Leading the transition to Positive Energy Neighbourhoods

Guest: Dr. ir.-arch. Evi Lambie, deputy project manager of oPEN Lab, VITO / EnergyVille

Topic: The H2020 project oPEN LAB aims to revitalise urban areas across Europe and lead the transition of Positive Energy Neighbourhoods. To achieve this, open innovation living labs are realized within existing urban contexts in three European cities: Genk (Belgium), Pamplona (Spain) and Tartu (Estonia).

You can access the presentation here: BME Horizon Hot Topics: Ethics of Artificial Intelligence

Guest: Dr Brandt Dainow, Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, Maynooth University

Topic: As artificial intelligence systems have spread into society, we have seen many problems arise due to unethical aspects of these systems, such as racial discrimination. We summarise and discuss the steps – “commandments” – developed in the EU to which artificial intelligence systems must comply to be trustworthy and ethical and how they are being embedded into both legislation and systems design.

You can access the presentation here: BME Horizon Hot Topics: Citizen science in practice: engaging citizens in research

Guest: Alice Sheppard, Community Manager, University College London

Topic: Involving citizens in science is an inspiring way to create societal impact of research. How to start and how to keep such communities together?

You can access the presentation here: BME Horizon Hot Topics: How are publishers adapting to an open research landscape?

Guest: Kelly Woods, Senior Associate Publisher, F1000, Open Research Europe

Topic: Are traditional journals still the gatekeepers of research? The evolving landscape of open publishing and the European Comission’s new publishing platform: Open Research Europe.

You can access the presentation here: BME Horizon Hot Topics: Building Open Science research communities

Guest: Dr. Judith de Haan, Open Science Manager, Utrecht University

Topic: Utrecht University launched an Open Science Programme as a part of its ambition to make research more relevant to society. The Programme stimulates and facilitates researcher to put open science in practice – how?
