UM Platform for Research Ethics and Integrity

The UM Platform for Research Ethics and Integrity aims to stimulate discussion within UM on research ethics and integrity, foster exchange of best practices between faculties, and organize events on relevant topics. The Platform is distinct from the faculty ethics review committees – which review and approve research projects – and the committee on scientific integrity – which deals with specific complaints filed regarding scientific integrity. The Platform meets at least twice per year. 

Join the 2nd FAIR Coffee Lecture on 13 April 10.00 - 11.00
