Stellungnahme zur geplanten Novelle des Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetzes


Das Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz (WissZeitVG) soll novelliert werden. Nachdem das BMBF sein Eckpunktepapier vom 17.03.2023 aufgrund einhelliger Kritik bereits kurz nach Veröffentlichung wieder „zurück in die Montagehalle“ geschickt hatte, wurde am 06.06.2023 ein neuer Referentenentwurf vorgestellt. 14 wissen­schaftliche Fach­gesellschaften aus dem Bereich der Natur- und Lebenswissenschaften, darunter auch die DPG, haben nun zu diesem Entwurf gemeinsam Stellung bezogen. Sie finden diese Stellungnahme hier.


The idea of the German Physiological Society (DPG) emerged during the 75th congress of the society of German natural scientists and physicians in 1903 in the city of Kassel and was established in 1904 in Breslau by its founding board member Karl Hürthle.

DPG promotes research and teaching in all fields of physiology. It is an interdisciplinary society where physicians, biologists, chemists and physicists account for the majority of its 800 members.

The annual meeting with symposia, lectures and poster sessions is hold every year in March at the residency of the respective first meeting executive, including special symposia of the (presently) six workgroups on several areas of expertise.

WIR - Die Jungen Physiologen

Vielfach wird vom Zurückgehen des wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchses in der Physiologie gesprochen. Um diesem Trend entgegenzuwirken, haben wir die „Jungen Physiologen“ ins Leben gerufen.
