Research seminar 11.9.2018: Responsible conduct of research

5.9.2018 08:11

In order for scientific research to be ethically acceptable, reliable and produce credible results, it must adhere to the principles of responsible conduct of research. Applying the guidelines for responsible conduct is a form of self-regulation carried out by the research community within the bounds of legislation.

In the first research seminar held by Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira this autumn, Senior Adviser Iina Kohonen from the Finnish National Board on Research Integrity (TENK) discusses the responsible conduct of research.

TENK has compiled the "Responsible conduct of research and procedures for handling allegations in Finland" or RCR guidelines to serve as an internal ethical guideline that Finnish universities, universities of applied sciences and research organisations have pledged to follow.

The presentation discusses the RCR guidelines and other principal guidelines and recommendations issued by TENK.

As a Senior Adviser at TENK, Iina Kohonen is responsible for research integrity adviser activities, the coordination of ethical review in human sciences and research integrity training.

The research seminar is held on Tuesday, 11 September 2018 at 15.00 - 16:00 in auditorium C111. Evira building, Mustialankatu 3, Viikki, Helsinki.

The seminar is open to all and does not require preliminary enrolment. The seminar is in finnish.
