Members

The German Data Forum (RatSWD) was founded in Summer 2004 by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), in accord with all federal government departments. It took over from the Commission for the Foundation of the German Data Forum, and carries out the same tasks as its predecessor. The RatSWD is an independent body of empirical researchers from universities, colleges, and other independent research institutions as well as representatives of important data producers and service centers. It consists of sixteen members. The members for the fifth period of office were appointed in Juli 2014.
