Science and policy division

The Science and Policy division comprises the correspondent platform with its expert committees (forums). The platform conducts dialogue with decision-makers in politics, administration, economy and society. It supports these stakeholders with scientific findings on important societal issues.

The forums develop scientifically sound information, advise in political discussions and provide experts. They contribute political and administrative concerns to research. In addition, they promote networking among scientists in the respective subject areas and coordinate cooperation with international commissions.
