After a lot of work and reflection, in particular on the part of Marco ARANEDA (CRPMS) and Philippe HUNEMAN (IHPST), the “Deontology, integrity and ethics for research” course was launched during the first semester of the academic year 2021-2022. This 10-hour training, divided into 5 modules of 2 hours each, was led by many speakers who are experts in the subject:

  • Philippe HUNEMAN (professor at the Institute of History and Philosophy of Sciences and Techniques, CNRS / University of Paris I Sorbonne)
  • Marco ARANEDA (lecturer at the Psychoanalysis, Medicine and Society Research Center, University of Paris)
  • Alice LEBRETON (researcher at the Institute of Biology of the École Normale Supérieure, INRAE)
  • Jacques HAIECH (honorary professor of biotechnology at the University of Strasbourg)
  • David LARROUSSERIE (science journalist for the newspaper Le Monde)
  • Bruno ANDREOTTI (professor at the Laboratory of Statistical Physics, University of Paris)
  • Catherine BOURGAIN (researcher and director of Cermes3, INSERM / University of Paris)
  • Gaëlle PONTAROTTI (post-doctoral fellow at the Institute of History and Philosophy of Sciences and Techniques, CNRS / Paris I Sorbonne University)
  • Arnaud SAINT MARTIN (researcher at the European Center for Sociology and Political Science, CNRS)
  • Justin SMITH (professor in the Sciences, Philosophy, History laboratory, University of Paris)

The dozen doctoral students present were able to discover and discuss various subjects such as cases of scientific fraud in molecular biology, the Camille Noûs initiative, genetic ancestry tests, or even the construction of the researcher’s identity.

This training should be repeated next year and open more widely to the interested scientific community. In the meantime, the next training course built by the members of the Labex and dedicated to “Epistemology and methodology of interdisciplinary research” will begin in March 2022.
