Legal basis

Guidelines for avoiding conflicts of interest

Expert opinions are obtained within the university for applications and funding measures. Consultation and decision-making are also organized within the university. These procedures must be conducted in a fair and transparent manner for both the experts and those being evaluated. Biases, which can never be excluded within a university, should be reduced to a minimum. The guidelines for avoiding conflicts of interest should contribute to this (only available in German).
