Der Aufbau von bioethischen Fähigkeiten in der Bildung und in der Doktorandenausbildung: Ein kollaboratives Netzwerk zwischen Moldawien, Rumänien und der Schweiz
Lay summary

Ziel dieses kollaborativen Netzwerks ist es, mit der Unterstützung des Partners Schweiz insbesondere in Moldawien, aber auch in Rumänien, die Kapazitäten für Lehre und Forschung in der Bioethik aufzubauen. Diese Kollaboration wird die langersehnte Möglichkeit für die drei Partner bieten, zusammen zu arbeiten und das bioethische Wissen zwischen west- und osteuropäischen Ländern auszutauschen. Unsere fünf spezifische Zielsetzungen sind:

  1. Netzwerkmöglichkeiten für junge Wissenschaftler/innen;
  2. Die Modernisierung und Koordination der grundlegenden Kurrikula der theoretischen und angewandten bioethischen Ausbildung;
  3. Verbesserung der Lehre und Ausbildung in der Bioethik durch modernste Fähigkeiten und Methoden in der Lehre;
  4. Durch das Training der nächsten Generation junger Wisenschaftler/innen aktuelle Forschungsmethoden in der empirischen Bioethik zu transferieren und neue Ansätze einzuführen;
  5. Die Forschungsinfrastruktur unserer osteuropäischen Partner zu verbessern.

Das vorgeschlagene kollaborative Netzwerk wird ein Instrument sein, um die individuellen und institutionellen Fähigkeiten der drei Partner auszubauen. Erstens wird es die Forschungsfähigkeiten junger talentierter Wissenschaftler/innen in der Bioethik verbessern. Zweitens wird es durch die Lehrtätigkeiten, die auf die Verbesserung der Methoden und Fähigkeiten in der bioethischen Lehre abzielen, eine Bereicherung für das lehrende Personal der drei Institutionen darstellen. Drittens wird diese Partnerschaft signifikant dabei helfen, die Forschungsinfrastruktur der osteuropäischen Partner (in Moldawien und Rumänien) zu modernisieren. Viertens wird die Partnerschaft dazu beitragen, Netzwerke zwischen jungen Wissenschaftler/innen und akademischem Personal zu etablieren. Wir stellen uns vor, dass dieses Netzwerk, das als Teil des Umfanges dieses Finanzierungsplans des SNF kreiert wurde, durch zukünftige Kollaborationen, nicht nur auf den nationalen sondern auch auf dem EU-Level, weiterhin stärker wachsen wird.

Building Bioethics Capacities in Education and Doctoral Training: A Collaborative Network among Moldova, Romania and Switzerland
Lay summary

The aims this collaborative network is to build bioethics teaching and research capacities particularly in Moldova and also in Romania with the support of its partner in Switzerland. This collaboration will provide much needed opportunity for the three partners to network and exchange bioethics knowledge between Western and Eastern European countries. Each partner brings certain areas of expertise in bioethics that the other will benefit from. In order to ensure that we reach our goal, we have designed five specific objectives that will be achieved through fulfillment of six activities. 

  1. Networking opportunities for young scholars;
  2. Modernization and coordination of the basic curricula of theoretical and applied bioethics training;
  3. Improvement of teaching and training in Bioethics through cutting edge teaching skills and teaching methodologies;
  4. Transferring current research methodology in empirical bioethics and introducingnew approaches by training the next generation of young scholars; and
  5. Enhance the research infrastructure of our partners from Eastern Europe.

The proposed collaborative network will be instrumental in developing individual and institutional capacities for the three partners. First, it will improve research capacities of young talented scientists currently working in the fields of Bioethics. Second, the didactic personnel of the three institutions will gain from the teaching activities which are aimed at improving their methods and skills in teaching Bioethics. Third, this partnership will significantly help modernize the research infrastructure of the Eastern European partners (in Moldova and Romania). Forth, the partnership will contribute towards establishing networks of young researchers and academic personnel. We envision this network created as part of this SNF Scopes funding scheme, will continue to grow stronger through future collaborative works not only at the national level but also at the EU level.

Abstract

This collaborative network aims to build bioethics teaching and research capacities particularly in Moldova and also in Romania with the support of its partner in Switzerland. For the three partners, this collaboration stands to provide much needed opportunity to network and exchange bioethics knowledge between Western and Eastern European countries. Each partner brings certain areas of expertise in bioethics that the other will benefit from. In order to ensure that we reach our goal, five specific objectives are delineated for this collaborative network. These objectives will be reached through the design and implementation of six activities as part of the partnership. The funding sought for this Scopes IP is for a duration of 24 months.Objectives:1)Networking opportunities for young scholars to establish contacts and long-term partnerships; 2)Modernization and coordination of the basic curricula of theoretical and applied bioethics training at the bachelor’s level for medical students, as well as Master’s and PhD students from other disciplines. This development, modernization and harmonization to the European standards of the Bioethics courses is especially important for the East European partners; 3)Improvement of teaching and training in Medical ethics/Bioethics through cutting edge teaching skills and teaching methodologies in light of the multicultural environment and developing technologies; 4)Transferring current research methodology in empirical bioethics and introducing new approaches by training the next generation of young scholars from the Eastern European regions (support of young scientists, PhD and post-doctoral students); and5)Improve the research infrastructure of our partners from Eastern Europe in order to continue and expand the teaching and research capacities gained through this collaboration.Significance of this collaborative networkThe proposed collaborative network will be instrumental in developing individual and institutional capacities for the three partners. First, the proposed activities as part of this partnership will critically improve research capacities of young talented scientists currently working in the fields of Ethics/Bioethics at the Universities of Basel, Bucharest and Chisinau. Second, the didactic personnel of the three education institutions will gain from the teaching activities which are aimed at improving their methods and skills in teaching Bioethics/Ethics. Third, at the institutional level, this partnership will significantly help modernize the research infrastructure of the Eastern European partners (Moldova and Romania) through the acquisition of scientific books and literature for library as well as technical equipment necessary for all the researchers to remain competitive in this international academic field. Forth, the partnership will contribute towards establishing networks of young researchers and academic personnel who will develop and generate funds for new projects, which will not only be significant for their careers, but also highlight the international visibility of the institutions. We envision this network created as part of this SNF Scopes funding scheme, will continue to grow stronger through future collaborative works not only at the national level but also at the EU level. Examples of future collaboration include working together on Marie Curie Actions grants to attract best PhD students and post-docs, who will work together on a bioethical topic.
