Public trust in science is crucial. As researchers, we need to safeguard ethics and integrity in scientific research. Yet in Europe there is no central resource containing information on how to perform science responsibly and with integrity. Therefore, we are strongly committed to building a new online platform for the research community. This new platform will offer help to anyone seeking support in handling day-to-day research practices and dilemmas. It will provide best-practice guidelines, cases, and tools for finding relevant rules.
Stakeholder consultation: Call for participants
This European Commission funded project seeks to include all stakeholders in a participatory way. After a pilot-phase in which we conducted face-to-face focus group discussions in Spain, Croatia, and the Netherlands, we’re now organizing an online scale-up phase. In this online scale-up phase we invite participants from all over the world to a closed online discussion that will be held from Monday February 19th until Sunday March 4th, 2018. This online discussion will explore participants’ research ethics and research integrity experiences and present our online wiki platform (currently in development) designed to help stakeholders with research ethics and research integrity issues. Questions will be posted every two days for a period of two weeks, and participants will be able to contribute to the online discussion thread at any time over the two week period.
If you are a researcher, a journal (assistant) editor, a member of a national or local ethics/integrity committee, a science policy maker, a representative from industry research, or a representative from a research funding organisation and are interested in participating, please go to http://entireconsortium.eu/stakeholder/ and sign up before Feb 1st 2018. We will then send you more detailed information by email.
