CLOSED MEETING 1

Sunday afternoon 14.00-17.00 hours, May 28, 2017

Chair: Dorian Karatzas (Head of the EC Ethics and Research Integrity Sector)

Title: Addressing Research Integrity challenges on a European Level: PRINTIGER - ENERI - DEFORM - ENTIRE

Due to rapid developments in how scientific research is conducted and scientific knowledge is produced, researchers and research managers are facing new integrity challenges and exploring options for addressing them. A number of European initiatives have been launched to analyse and support integrity work. They focus on (a) empowerment of researchers to address emerging integrity challenges (PRINTEGER); (b) governance and awareness of research integrity (ENERI) and (c) occurrence, cost estimate and prevention of misconduct (DEFORM) and normative frameworks (EnTIRE). Although concerns about research integrity and misconduct are shared by many, the optimal way to address these challenges if far from clear. Although many see integrity as part of excellent and responsible research, tensions may occur between performance and integrity. How can the threee key elements of the European research landscape (excellence, integrity and responsibility) be aligned?
