Scientific societies in Germany
Scientific societies in Germany with ties to research on higher education and science
Scientific societies facilitate communication between scientists and researchers, both within the boundaries of research fields and between different institutes and higher education institutions.
They are useful points of contact when expert advice and reliable information are required. They advance science policy discussion, and they provide opinions on important issues relative to research and teaching. In addition, for young scientists and researchers, they provide a communication platform and various kinds of support, including special prizes.
