Scientific collaborations with organisations and institutions

BfS is co-operating with universities and non-university institutions in Germany and abroad.

The scientific co-operations include working together in general terms (i.e. general arrangements with scientific organisations or universities stipulating basic parameters such as financial expenditures, staff assignment / exchange, as well as cooperation in education), carrying out joint projects (i.e. research and development cooperations related to specific topics), and sharing research infrastructure (with the emphasis laid on infrastructure that is either cost-intensive or only rarely/uniquely available).

The present state of the BfS’s co-operation with authorities, scientific organisations and universities (except for projects covered by the EU framework programme for research and technological development) is summarized below.

The Federal Office for Radiation Protection is a WHO Collaborating Centre

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz, BfS) are extending their collaboration in the field of protection against harmful effects of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. Beginning in 2014 the WHO reappointed the BfS as an internationally recognized Collaborating Centre (CC).
