The major objective of the workshop “Good Scientific Practice - Protecting Scientific Integrity” is to know and understand the basic rules and values of the responsible conduct of research, according to local, national and international regulations and guidelines.

The participants will explore the differences and grey areas between good scientific practice, questionable research practice and scientific misconduct. They will learn how misconduct can be recognized and prevented, how it should be addressed and dealt with in case it occurs, and what damage it can cause if handled improperly.

The participants will learn to develop appropriate solutions to difficult situations in the process of science and receive advice on how to protect their own scientific work. They are encouraged to speak with their colleagues and the appropriate institutions about mistakes and problems.

The content of the course follows the curriculum “Good Scientific Practice” which was commissioned by and developed in cooperation with the Research Ombudsman (DFG):
