Scientific Committees

The Robert Koch Institute gets advised by a number of scientific committees in order to fulfil its regulatory and technical duties at the highest level. Members of the individual committees are experts from various related disciplines which are appointed by RKI and the Federal Ministry of Health, respectively. According to their individual rules of procedure, the periods of appointment range from three to four years. The committees’ offices are located at the RKI and organize all aspects concerning the work of the committees, convey recommendations and implement their resolutions.
