Ombudspersons oversee the scientific work of the Fraunhofer IVV

The ombudspersons of the Fraunhofer IVV ensure the integrity of all scientific work carried out by the Fraunhofer IVV. Together with the scientists they make sure that you can have confidence in our scientific findings. Impropriety such as data manipulation and the damaging of intellectual property not only breach trust but also harm science itself.
