Dealing with our scientists

A scientist at the University of Kassel is currently being subjected to defamatory invective on social media.

The University would like to point out that its scientists are willing to engage in controversial discussions about the results of their research activities, as long as they are conducted objectively. The work of our academics is conducted within the framework of the freedom of research and teaching enshrined in the German Basic Law. The University of Kassel rejects personal attacks on members of this university. Rules of appropriate behavior must also apply in social media.
