Starting Point

Research practices – irrespective of the discipline ­– follow ethical principles, norms and standards that are either of personal nature or defined by the research institution and its community. In this course, we will explore variations and diversity in values, principles and moral standards as they relate to the research topics of the participants. What aspects in academia and research are prone to ethical dilemma? We will look at hiring and promotion practices, the research workflow, the publishing process and discuss what is still acceptable for the sake of research and where moral boundaries are required.


In this course, participants will learn to reflect and re-align their own research practices according to their personal set of values as well as according to Good Scientific Practices and Open Science Principles.


    • Values and motivation assessment
    • Pressure points, biases and assumptions in research projects
    • Influence of the Open Science movement
    • Discussion around established principles: Good Scientific Practices, Open Science Principles, Vienna Principles, F.A.I.R. and C.A.R.E. Principles (data management)


          • Theoretical introduction to the topic
          • Reading material, case studies
          • Participative group work
          • Individual work
          • Group discussion

          Max. number of participants: 12.
