EUA-CDE Focus group: Implementing an Ethos of Research Integrity in Doctoral Education

EUA-CDE Focus Group on implementing an ethos of research integrity in doctoral education brings together universities to discuss the current situation in Europe and reflect on ways forward.

Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium

24 - 25 October 2017

  • Implementing an ethos of research integrity has become a crucial challenge for academic leaders and professionals working on doctoral education. Universities are facing uncharted ethical questions stemming from innovative paths for research, while increased social awareness puts a spotlight on the integrity of their staff. Doctoral education is emerging as a powerful tool to meet these challenges.

    On 24 and 25 October 2017 the EUA Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE) organises a Focus Group dedicated to this topic. The event will bring together universities to discuss implementing an ethos of research integrity as an integral part of doctoral education.

    The Focus Group welcomes universities at different stages of development in this field, from those just starting out to institutions with an established track record. Participating doctoral education professionals and ethics and research integrity officers will have the opportunity to exchange views on the current situation in Europe and together reflect on ways forward.


    Please complete the registration form and send it to at the latest on 5 October 2017The event is free of charge and open to all EUA-CDE members, but limited to 25 participants. Places will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, with a limit of one participant per institution. If the capacity of this event is reached before this date, we reserve the right to close registrations before this deadline. Participants will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation expenses. Please don’t make any travel arrangements before receiving a confirmation e-mail.

    The Focus Group will be followed by a Webinar to disseminate a summary of the key findings of the Focus Group discussion to a broader audience.
