Excerpts from the statement by Prof. Dr. Hans Jürgen Krupp during a conversation with the press entitled: "New Forms of Cooperation between Research and Statistics" on September 21, 2001, in Berlin.

The Minister for Education and Research, Mrs. Buhlmann, convened a commission for the improvement of the German informational infrastructure. The central concern of the commission, which included data producers as well as data users, was the relationship between research and statistics. Mr. Hahlen, President of the Federal Statistical Office, was appointed vice-chair of the commission.

The commission’s first meeting took place on October 26, 1999, and its report was completed on March 13, 2001. By completing the report within such a short period of time, the commission made it possible for part of their recommendations to be put into practice during the current legislative period.
