02: Research integrity in science

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Public trust in science is important. Acts of research misconduct violate this trust, and have an adverse impact on individual perpetrators, their colleagues and institutions, and on those who blow the whistle. It also has ramifications for the knowledge pool, hence wider research community, and entire fields of inquiry. Constructive discussion of this issue necessarily involves scrutiny of a range of questions, some of which are complex and do not lend themselves to ready answers: Who exactly is science for? Is the incidence of fraud on the increase? What sorts of pressures compromise a morally sound research ethos? How can any international rules/guidelines governing research conduct be arrived at or enforced when so many subscribe to the view that moral values are culturally relative? Might education play a role in checking the incidence of research misconduct? If so, what forms should that education take? Who should be involved in policing research? In this workshop, we address these and other questions with a view to contributing constructively to the broader discussion and theme of this year’s Technology Forum.
