Recommendations for handling security-relevant research

The German Research Foundation (DFG) and Leopoldina have jointly published recommendations that aim to draw attention to the Dual Use of research results, the responsible handling of security-relevant research and the self-regulation of science in this regard. The recommendations deal with the conflicting priorities of freedom of research and the responsibilities inherent to this freedom. You can find detailed information on this here and at the DFG.
