Knowledge transfer with society and politics is an integral part of our strategy so that the GFZ can fulfil its task of providing information and advice outside the scientific community.
We understand knowledge transfer as diverse and application-oriented activities, always based on research results and geared to the respective needs of the interaction groups, which serve to better meet future challenges in the field of earth and environment. The aim is to make scientific knowledge available to societal stakeholders and to enable them to make robust and evidence-based decisions. To this end, various formats are used, e.g. advisory services for political decision-makers, participation in socially relevant committees, dialogue, outreach and further education services for different civil society target groups and synthesis formats coordinated with other Helmholtz Centres.
