Committee for Freedom and Responsibility in Science

The Principle of Freedom and Responsibility in Science is fundamental to scientific advancement, and to human and environmental wellbeing. This principle underpins all of the Council’s work, and is overseen by the Committee for Freedom and Responsibility in Science (CFRS).

The Committee promotes freedom for scientists to pursue knowledge and to freely exchange ideas, at the same time as advocating the responsibility of scientists to maintain scientifically defensible conclusions, and of scientific institutions to apply high standards.
