Good Scientific Practice

The FVB institutes have applied the "Rules of Securing Good Scientific Practice" in accordance with the recommendations laid out by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and adopted by the Leibniz Association.

In the FVB institutes, dealing with real or perceived misconduct is defined by a „Code of procedure in case of suspicion of scientific misconduct“ which is supported by regulations of the individual institutes. This has been passed in a Resolution on Principles of the executive council of FVB.
