Thursday 10th September

Research Ethics and intercultural collaboration

9:00 – 12:00 Scientific Integrity

The aim of the course is to raise awareness of possible scientific integrity issues in research. Participants will be able to identify a number of categories of scientific integrity issues, recognize situations in which scientific integrity can be jeopardized. They will learn how to respond to possible integrity issues, how to relate such issues to central values of science, and which policies TU/e has to deal with integrity issues.

  • awareness of scientific integrity
  • categories of scientific integrity issues
  • avoidance of misconduct
  • relating integrity to central values of science

12:00 – 13:00 lunch

13:00 – 17:00 Information Literacy and Research Data Management

Finding and controlling scientific literature and data

  • systematic and effective literature search
  • ocumenting and communicating literature search
  • using database alerts
  • using references correctly
  • awareness of benefits of research data management and data sharing
  • meeting data requirements of research funders (EC) via a data management plan
  • protecting, securing and describing research data

Friday 11th September

9:00 – 17:00 (lunch at 12:00) Intercultural Intervision

  • cultural differences ‐ basic framework
  • exchange of intercultural experiences
  • intervision ‐ why and how
