Concordat on Mitigating COVID-19 Pandemic Effects on Research (COMPEER)
An initiative to mobilize and unite funding agencies, governments, academic and research institutions, scientific associations and conference organizers, researchers, publishers and other parties in (re)appraising how scientific research outputs are assessed in the context of education, graduation, funding, and hiring and promotion decisions.
The goal of COMPEER is to ensure that individuals are fairly recognized for their merits and that the crisis does not create undue divisions and inequity between people, and that everyone is engaged in enhancing the academic experience for all and conducting research in a more sustainable, responsible and impactful way.
COMPEER has 230 SIGNERS now
