Federation of German Scientists

Federation of German Scientists (1959; Berlin; vdw-ev.de)

The Federation of German Scientists is “a network of scientists from various academic disciplines, who critically reflect on their responsibility for the effects of their scientific research and technical development, and who use their expertise to actively take part in the social debate on topics including peace, climate, biodiversity and economy.” They believe that while science and technology are “important foundations of our civilization and our culture”, there are still “far too few scientists are concerned with the social impacts of their work, especially when their results get into the political and economic force fields. The VDW confronts this deficit with an active discourse.”

Leadership: Wolfgang Paul
