Standing Committees of the Leopoldina

Standing Committees of the Leopoldina

The Academy has permanent standing committees that comprise high-ranking scientists, as well as prominent figures from industry and society.

The task of the standing committees is to help shape any scientific discussions in their respective fields, to discuss important topics and derive corresponding proposals to be used for policy and social counsel. In addition to the initiatives of the classes and individual Academy members, the standing committees are another important instrument to define new topics within the Leopoldina. To this end, they are in regular contact with the sections, classes and working groups of thematically related fields.
