Research Ethics

DFG Guideline 10: Legal and Ethical Framework Conditions

"Scientists handle the constitutionally granted freedom of research responsibly. They take into account rights and obligations, especially those resulting from legal requirements, but also from contracts with third parties, and, if necessary, obtain and submit approvals and ethical votes. With regard to research projects, a thorough assessment of the research consequences and evaluation of the respective ethical aspects should be carried out."
