Forschungsgemeinschaft Funk e.V.

FGF Workshops

Expert meetings on current research topics concerning the interaction of high frequency electromagnetic fields with biological systems.

Title: 23. FGF Workshop (in Cooperation with the Ministry for Environment Baden/Württemberg)
Radiofrequency Fields and Health – Conclusions after 17 years work of the
Special Topic: Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields and Brain Physiology – What is
the Connection?
Year: 23. - 25.11.2009 in Stuttgart/Germany
Topic: This event will be used as an opportunity to summarize not only the work of FGF but also that of the whole scientific community in the field of biological and health effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF). For this purpose representatives from different administrative and scientific bodies will present and discuss their assessment of the state of scientific research and necessary actions for the future.

Title: 22. FGF Workshop (in Cooperation with the Forum Mobilkommunikation, Austria)
"Seriöse Forschung oder ‚Junk Science’?“ 
Year: 22 September in Vienna, Austria
Topic: Jointly with Forum Mobilkommunikation (FMK), FGF invites to this workshop about quality standards of scientific work in the mobile radio research. Experts will present the criteria for selection and evaluation of mobile radio research and discuss the different approaches. One focus will be laid on the question how to deal with faked and methodically incorrect studies. Conference language is German

Title: 21. FGF Workshop (in Cooperation with the Forum Mobilkommunikation, Austria)
Can we trust in exposure limits?
Year: 31.03.2009 in Vienna, Austria
Topic: Experts from authorities and research institutions in Austria, Germany and Switzerland will answer questions like: What is the basis of the limit recommendations? Why are they not integrated into standardized national laws? Are there new research results which put the recommendations into question? What international efforts for the standardization of regulations have been realized?
Conference language is German.

Title: 20. FGF Workshop (in Cooperation with the Forum Mobilkommunikation, Austria)
"Mobile radio and cancer - What says epidemiology?"
Year: 02.12.2008 in Vienna, Austria
Topic: This information meeting will give an overview of the results of the INTERPHONE study and the planned subsequent studies. Furthermore, methodology and statistics in epidemiology will be presented and the results of epidemiologic studies will be confronted with experimental biological studies on this subject. Priority is given to the review and discussion of the results of different research areas.
Conference language is German.

Title: 19. FGF Workshop (in Cooperation with the Ministry for Environment Baden/Württemberg)
Open Questions in the Research on Biological and Health Effects of Low-Intensity RF-EMF
Year: 17. - 19. November 2008 in Stuttgart/Germany
Topic: The workshop aims to pick up open questions on health effects of radiofrequency fields. Key issues are the research on children, on possible long-term effects with the example of animal experiments as well as on mechanisms of cellular and subcellular level.
Further Information:: As the number of paricipants is limited please register as soon as possible at info@fgf.de
Deadline for registration is Tuesday, September 30th, 2008.

Title: 18. FGF Workshop (in Cooperation with the Forum Mobilkommunikation, Austria)
Genetic damage through mobile radio?
Year: 17. September 2008 in Vienna/Austria
Topic: The aim of the information meeting on September 17 in Vienna (Austria) was to present the state of knowledge of genotoxic effects of radio applications and to give the researchers the opportunity to bring light into the confusing situation in this research area.

Title: 17. FGF-Workshop (in cooperation with the IMBA-Network)
Omics for Assessing Unclear Risks
Year: Mai, 26-28 2008 in Berlin
Topic: Risk assessment with regard to carcinogenicity so far is largely based on evidence from epidemiological and animal studies while in vitro studies only play a supporting role. <br> The aim of this international workshop is to explore the potential of omics technologies for assessing unclear cancer risks. This will be done with the example of the effects of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (RF EMF).
