Benedikt Fecher, Dr.

​​Since 2017, Benedikt Fecher has headed the program area “Knowledge & Society” at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG). He is an interdisciplinary science studies scholar and investigates the interrelationships between science and society in the context of digitization. His research focus is on data-driven research, research infrastructures, open science & open access, science communication, and the measurement and assessment of societal impact. He has published extensively on these topics and led national and international externally funded projects.

In 2017, Benedikt Fecher received his doctorate (summa cum laude) from the UdK Berlin, in collaboration between HIIG and DIW Berlin. In his dissertation, “A Reputation Economy: The Value of Data in Academic Research,” he focused on the provision and use of research data. Previously, he studied communication science and economics at the University of Erfurt and the University of Ottawa, as well as Culture, Communication & Globalization (focus: organizational sociology) at the University of Aalborg.

In 2017, Benedikt Fecher was scientific officer for open access and research data at the Leibniz Association. He was associated with HIIG for five years as a research associate in the lead project “Opening Science“, which received the “Outstanding Place in the Land of Ideas” award by Deutsche Bank and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research in 2016. In 2016, he was also a DARIAH-DE Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science. He is a Research Fellow German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin).

 

Ongoing third-party funded projects:

  • IMPaQT – Indicators, Measurement and Performance of Quality Assurance: Third-Mission Activities in the Social Sciences (PI)
  • OrA – Organizational Adaptivity in the Higher Education Context (Senior Researcher)
  • Scholarled Plus – Sustainable Open Access journal financing through consortial support structures in small and interdisciplinary subjects (Co-PI)
