CLOSED MEETING 1

Sunday afternoon 14.00-17.00 hours, May 28, 2017

Title: Addressing Research Integrity challenges on a European Level

Chair: Dorian Karatzas (Head of the EC Ethics and Research Integrity Sector)

Speakers:

  • Hub Zwart / Willem Halffman (Radboud University Nijmegen): PRINTEGER, objectives and mid-term results
  • Dirk Lanzerath / Nicole Foeger: ENERI: objectives and preliminary results
  • Caroline Gans Combe: DEFORM: objectives and design


Due to rapid developments in the ways in which scientific research is conducted and scientific knowledge is produced (increase of scale, pace, competition, automation, public-private partnerships, etc.) researchers and research managers are facing new integrity challenges and exploring options for addressing them. Recently, a number of European initiatives have been launched to analyse and support this process of integrity work. They focus on (a) empowerment of researchers to address emerging integrity challenges (PRINTEGER); (b) governance and awareness of research integrity (ENERI) and (c) occurrence, cost estimate and prevention of misconduct (DEFORM)

Although concerns about research integrity and misconduct are shared by many, the optimal way to address these challenges if far from clear. For instance: according to some, integrity is part of excellent and responsible research. According to others, tensions may occur between the strive towards excellence on the one hand and integrity issues on the other. How can the three key elements of the European research landscape (excellence, integrity and responsibility) be aligned? Composition of the Panel: key players from the projects involved plus invited experts.

Introduction by chair: importance of integrity for the European research arena (5 minutes)
Round of introduction (10 minutes)
