  1. Die Bedeutung des Wettbewerbs in Wissenschaft und Hochschule By Dilger, Alexander

  1. By: Dilger, Alexander
    Abstract: Wettbewerb ist in vielen gesellschaftlichen Bereichen wie Wirtschaft, Politik und Sport, aber auch in Wissenschaft und Hochschule wichtig. Wettbewerb hat positive Wirkungen auf die Leistungen und Auswahl der Wettbewerbsteilnehmer gemäß den geltenden Wettbewerbskriterien. Deshalb kommt es auf wissenschaftsadäquate Kriterien an, zumal die Alternativen zum Wettbewerb große Nachteile haben.
    Abstract: Competition is important. This holds for many sectors of society like economy, politics and sports but also science and academia. Competition has positive effects on the performance and selection of its participants according to the prevailing criteria of the competition. Thus it is essential that these criteria are adequate for science and academia, especially since the alternatives to competition have great disadvantages.
