GAIA supports the recommendations of the German Research Foundation (DFG) regarding Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice.

GAIA is an ancient Greek word for the Earth
GAIA: The word Gaîa touches on a myth that affected the beginning of philosophy and science. "Mother Earth" is a formula for bearing and conceiving, giving and taking, up and down. A guarantor of the cycle of life, Gaîa represents the foundation of the law that is preliminary to human dispositions.
