The Senate Commissions of the German Research Foundation (DFG) give their scientific view concerning socially relevant issues with reference to research. The responsibilities include consulting of politics and scientific self-adminitration.

Plenary meetings, workgroups, roundtable discussions and workshops are the instruments of the Senate Commissions.

In areas with a high demand for research and structuring it is important to develop comprehensive approaches for the complex coordination and the improvement of the research infrastructure.This includes e.g. the interdisciplinary DFG workgroup "Infrastructure for the terrestrial research".

A close cooperation between the Senate Commission for Water Research (KoWa) and the DFG review board 318 (water research) was ensured any time, because members of the KoWa were also elected to the review board 318.
