Senate Committee for Research and Graduate Development

The Committee for Research and Graduate Development gets established and appointed by the Senate. It advises the Senate on fundamental questions of research and graduate development, fundings and services, which go beyond the scope of a single faculty. In addition, it prepares resolutions to these topics, e.g. regarding the allocation of funds for the internal university research and graduation programmes.

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).
