About the Seminar

At a time when the need to build trust between science, society and policy makers is becoming more and more important, it is essential that the culture of best practice is established as the foundation for research integrity. Research activities should be undertaken within the highest ethical considerations, and misconduct should be identified and dealt with in an open and transparent manner. The quality of research is entirely based on the highest level of integrity.

At this seminar, two short papers will be presented:

11.00 – 11.20: 
Kees Schuyt, Jacques van Doorn Fellow and Chair of the Royal Dutch Academy-Committee-report Scientific Integrity and Solid Data Management (2012, in Dutch)
