Digital Repository for Scientific Policy and Social Advice to Be Launched Shortly

Digital Repository for Scientific Policy and Social Advice to Be Launched Shortly

Scientific advice documents will soon be able to be stored in a digital repository for scientific policy and social advice (REPOD). The project, which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), was presented in Berlin on 24 January 2024. It is intended to help improve political decision-making.
The decisive factor in the development of the repository was the realization that political decisions are often based on empirical research findings and expert opinions. However, the necessary advisory documents are often scattered all over the Internet, making research tedious and time-consuming. The aim of the project was therefore to create an information and advisory infrastructure that simplifies the transfer of knowledge from research to politics and society.
In the future, all advisory documents from the entire German science system will be recorded, collected and directly accessible across all disciplines in the repository. REPOD (Repository for Policy Documents) will be used especially by actors from politics, administration, and other areas of society.
REPOD was developed by the ZBW - Leibniz Information Centre for Economics as project coordinator, the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG), the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI), the Leibniz Institute for Research on Society and Space (IRS), the RWI - Leibniz Institute for Economic Research and the Leibniz Association.
The HBI conducted the accompanying research on the topic "What makes good scientific policy advice?". More information on the project can be found here.
