Training as a driver

Training is a fundamental driver in the development of a culture of research integrity. The commitment of the institutions requires the mobilisation of the community and training at all levels of involvement in scientific activities. This process begins by awareness raising on research integrity from the moment of admission to higher education.

The Ministerial Order of 25 May 2016 establishes the national training framework and procedures for delivery of the national doctorate diploma (Article 3-3). Doctoral schools are therefore responsible for ensuring “that each doctoral student receives training in research ethics and research integrity.” These training courses are accessible in a variety of formats specific to each site and use participatory teaching methods.

In time, the aim is that this training should raise the awareness of all the men and women who contribute to research activities: researchers (doctoral students, postdocs and confirmed or experienced researchers) as well as technical and administrative  staff.
