To answer our re­search questions, a two-stage mixed-methods de­sign was chosen, which is multi-perspective in nature.

In the first phase of data collection, problem-centered interviews will be conducted with selected chairholders or professors who lead working groups, as well as group discussions with the respective chair/working group teams. In the second phase, all holders of a chair/professorship or professors who head working groups and their scientific staff in the subjects of biology, business administration and mechanical engineering, and sociology/social sciences will be surveyed in status group-specific (on­line) surveys.

The data analysis extends up to and in­clu­ding the third phase and thus ensures the combination of qua­li­ta­ti­ve and quantitative methods for the best possible gain in knowledge.
