Rules of Good Scientific Practice

Conscientiousness, integrity, open discourse, and clearly regulated procedures for dealing with misconduct: researchers at Jülich are committed to upholding the rules of good scientific practice. All senior staff must assume responsibility for ensuring that these quality standards are endorsed in the institutes. Forschungszentrum Jülich also believes that senior staff should provide a good example for young scientists at the beginning of their careers and emphasize the importance of good scientific practice.

Quality Management at Forschungszentrum Jülich

Forschungszentrum Jülich complies with defined norms and standards to ensure the quality of its research, developments, and services. In doing so, it uses a range of internationally and nationally established quality management systems which are applied to different areas at Jülich.

Responsibility for Humans and the Environment

In the past, as a former nuclear research centre, Forschungszentrum Jülich operated two research reactors and was involved in the technological development of the neighbouring high-temperature reactor operated by AVR (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Versuchsreaktor GmbH). Today, Jülich is still active in research areas where nuclear techniques play a key role, such as nuclear medicine. Forschungszentrum Jülich is therefore obliged to ensure that the radioactive waste for which it is responsible is stored and disposed of properly in compliance with legislation. In so doing, protecting employees, the population, and the environment is top priority.
