Permanent Senate Commission on Key Questions in Clinical Research

The task of the SCCR is to advise policymakers and government authorities as well as the scientific community and the public on behalf of the Senate of the DFG. The Commission examines issues relevant to medical research that are socially, politically or economically significant. It particularly focuses on areas affecting the actions of policymakers and government authorities, both nationally and internationally. The Senate Commission also regularly issues position statements and seeks to find solutions when there is a need for regulation on certain topics with obvious relevance to clinical research.
