Call for collaboration! Virtue based ethics and Integrity of Research: Train-The-Trainer program for Upholding the principles and practices of the European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity


The VIRT2UE project asks for your collaboration in filling out this questionnaire, in sharing with them information about the educational materials in use in your institution and possibly in sharing with them the material itself.

VIRT2UE aims to develop a sustainable train-the-trainer blended learning program enabling contextualized research integrity (RI) teaching across Europe. The VIRT2UE training program aims to affect the behavior of trainers and researchers, developing scientific virtues as well.

One of the objective of the project is to map existing RI training practices in commercial and in non-commercial stakeholders. To do so, we developed a questionnaire in order to collect information about how the training programs are organized, at which level and what kind of educational material is used during those trainings. Collecting this information will allow us to identify good practices, needs and lacunas in the organization of RI educational programs. Moreover, we aim to collect the all RI educational material currently used, free available on-line or not, in order to map to current state of the art.

To achieve our objectives, we would like to ask your collaboration in filling out the questionnaire, in sharing with us information about the educational materials in use in your institution and possibly in sharing with us the material itself.
