According to the European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity, ‘good research practices are based on fundamental principles of research integrity”. But how can we meet the practical, ethical and intellectual challenges inherent in research with integrity, how do we manage research integrity issues in big research programmes and identify research integrity mechanisms in interdisciplinary work? The Human Brain Project’s Researcher Awareness and Researcher Integrity training is designed to open a conversation about research integrity issues, developing capacities for researchers, staff and managers to identify and address them.
The Human Brain Project has worked to enhance the capacity for ethical and social reflection, and corresponding action, among researchers at all levels across the project. This is a core aspect of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in action.
Hosted by Manuel Guerrero, leader of the Ethics Rapporteur Programme at the Human Brain Project, the below video introduces the work for researcher awareness and research integrity in the Human Brain Project. Manuel Guerrero’s presentation is then followed by a presentation by Stefan Eriksson, an expert in research ethics and research integrity matters from Uppsala University.
This is one of the topics in a series of training modules explaining and reflecting on the concept of responsible research and innovation and how this approach can enable better science and innovation. The training covers human and animal data, gender, diversity and inclusion, researcher awareness and research integrity, dual use of concern and misuse ethics and RRI dimensions of knowledge transfer and commercialization, neuroethics, consciousness & AI ethics, and science communication.
