ALLEA publishes revised edition of The European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity


Brussels, 24 March 2017
: The European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities, published today the revised edition of The European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity, a guide that addresses good practice and bad conduct in science.

This Code “serves the European research community as a framework for self-regulation across all scientific and scholarly disciplines and for all research settings. Particularly the revised Code addresses recent and emerging challenges emanating from technological developments, open science, citizen science and social media, among other areas.” [1]

 

Professor Günter Stock, the President of ALLEA (All European Academies) presented the European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity to European Commissioner for Science, Research and Innovation, Carlos Moeda.

The European Commission has received today the new European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity aimed at promoting the responsible conduct of research to help improve its quality and reliability.  This new Code was developed by national academies of sciences and humanities through their umbrella organisation, the All European Academies (ALLEA) federation, in close cooperation with the European Commission.” [2]

Commissioner Carlos Moedas said :

“The Commission’s recent White Paper on the Future of Europe shows that we need knowledge and innovation to respond to global challenges and to address the needs of people in the European Union. The public needs full trust in science, and this can only be achieved if the highest level of research ethics and integrity are guaranteed. This goes hand in hand with our Open Science agenda to ensure open access to scientific publications and data. I warmly thank ALLEA and its member academies for producing this new Code of Conduct for Research Integrity. I am sure it will serve as a model for organisations and researchers across Europe.”[2]

 

This revision was led by ALLEA’s Permanent Working Group on Science and Ethics.
