Scientific integrity is basically very simple: don’t steal (ideas and texts from others) and don’t lie (about your results and conclusions). But what if your research outcome leads to a fierce public debate despite all your integrity? Or earlier in the process, if the financer-to-be of your research demands full control of publications? Then, scientific integrity is not so simple anymore.

In this workshop, led by Barend van der Meulen, Chairman of the Scientific Integrity Committee of Wageningen University and Research, we will explore the dilemmas that researchers have to deal with in scientific integrity issues. You will be challenged by a ‘real life’ case presented by Gab van Winkel, who has given many workshops on scientific integrity for PhD candidates. By online voting, participants decide on every step to take in the case.

This workshop is open to everybody who is involved in research, but will be in particular interesting for (senior) scientists who do externally funded research. Registration for this workshop is not necessary, but please be in time!
