The Maastricht UMC+ considers scientific integrity as a core value and has a longstanding commitment to ensure that it is embedded in its research culture and activity. In order to guarantee the independent and meticulous execution of research, a Research Code Maastricht UMC+ was developed which is in line with the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity and the UM Integrity Code of Conduct.
Research Code Maastricht UMC+
The Research Code Maastricht UMC+ states that all persons involved in research be they staff, technicians, PhD students, bachelor/master students or visitors, are expected to maintain the highest standards of integrity in all aspects of their research. Moreover, the Research Code Maastricht UMC+ provides those involved in research with a clear description of the rules for ethical and socially responsible conduct in scientific research. Every person involved in research who will receive their contract from the Human Resources department is informed about the existence of the Research Code Maastricht UMC+.
