Ethics of research is recognized worldwide as a mandatory tool for researchers. The aim of the 4-hours seminar is to give an overview of the field. Knowledge about the responsible conduct of research includes facts, guidelines, policies, data and other sources of information.

Among the core competencies that are discussed in the different ethics of research training programs and that we will briefly tackle there are:

·      Knowledge of, and sensitivity to, issues surrounding the responsible conduct of research and research misconduct.

·      Appreciation for accepted, normative scientific practices for conducting research.

·      Awareness of the grey areas and ambiguities of ethical issues, including differences between compliant and ethical behaviour in the conduct of research, or the range of acceptable and unacceptable practices.

·      Awareness that rules change over time and vary across disciplines or nations.

·      Information about the regulations, policies, statutes, and guidelines that govern the conduct of research.
