Support and counselling regarding questions of good scientific practice and its violation through scientific misconduct; These are the duties of the TUM ombudsperson, to whom scientists at the university can turn for advice.
The Senate has elected Prof. i. R. Dr. rer.nat. Heiner Bubb to take on this role for the next three years. From 1993-2009 he held the TUM Chair of Ergonomics. The ombudsperson is not subject to directives and is therefore regarded as an independent authority within the university.
