Deontology, integrity and ethics for research

Training objectives: Make researchers aware of ethics, scientific fraud, and social responsibility through a transversal training program.

The next training session starts on December 1st, 2023. It will be given in French.

Description of the training: 5 modules of 2 hours each, led by one or two speakers. Each module will address specific content through historical-conceptual courses and the case study methodology. Half of the time in each module will be devoted to discussion and exchange with doctoral students. This training has an interdisciplinary vocation, with a strong emphasis on the structural and contingent factors of a scientific, social, economic, and political nature that influence scientific integrity, deontology, and ethics in research.
