About the project
With the European research landscape rapidly changing, nowadays, it is becoming increasingly essential to emphasise the virtue of research integrity and to start handling new scientific techniques in a comprehensible way.
Research integrity is a constituent of more innovation, growth and high-quality jobs. It leads to more efficient, appropriate, useful and reliable scientific evidence for policy-makers and entrepreneurs, where decisions based on research results lead to a better future.
Path2Integrity will support formal and informal learning methods and will contribute to establishing a culture of research integrity by pursuing the following aims:
- Establish excellent learning paths with research integrity role-models and rotatory role-playing by developing and disseminating a Path2Integrity handbook of instruction;
- Raise awareness of scientific facts about research integrity and role-models in educational organisations through a widespread Path2Integrity campaign;
- Achieve wide-spread implementation of excellent learning paths, by using existing and successful educational practices as a foundation and international collaborations across four continents, along with robust assessment methods;
- Create units for learning research integrity that address everyone either directly or indirectly involved in research, including secondary school students, undergraduates, graduates, and young researchers.
