DFG introduces ombudsperson training

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, Germany’s largest public research funder, is boosting training for ombudspersons at DFG-funded institutes.

A code of best practice, launched during a DFG meeting on 30 October, spells out ways of working that ensure scientific excellence, and outlines methods of coping with conflicts and uncertainties in scientists’ working lives.
