Commission for Ethics in Security-related Research

A Commission on Ethics in Security-related Research (KEF) is working at LIN. The commission was established in accordance with the recommendations of the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the National Academy Leopoldina and advises the scientists of LIN on scientific-ethical questions of security-relevant research projects.

As an instrument of self-regulation of science, it helps LIN researchers to undertake a risk-benefit assessment of their research content in light of potential misuses by third parties ("dual use").



Members of the Commission are:

  • Dr. Wilko Altrock
  • PD Dr. Dr. Björn Schott (deputy chair)
  • Dr. Ulrich Schröder
  • Prof. Dr. Constanze Seidenbecher (Chair)
