March 29th 2017, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.: “The principles of Good Scientific Practice”

(Location: Room 205, 2nd floor, Vietnamese-German Centre, HUST, Dai Co Viet, Hanoi)

Scientists have great freedom to explore important research questions in natural and life sciences as well as in social sciences and the humanities. At the same time, they have a great responsibility and have to follow the principles of research integrity such as honesty, objectivity, reliability, etc. Preventing from research misconduct must therefore be the ethical ultimate principle for each scientist.

The German Research Foundation’s (DFG) recommendations for safeguarding good scientific practice, published in 1998, were used by the German research community to initiate and formulate a system of self-regulation that found a general consensus. Meanwhile worldwide a Code of Conduct for Research Integrity is on the agenda.
What are the main principles of Good Scientific Practice? To whom do I turn with questions regarding good scientific practice, or in the case of suspected scientific misconduct? And what consequences can it have?
These and other questions will be answered in this seminar by Dr Paul Winkler, Administrative Director of the Centre for Biodiversity and Sustainable Land Use, University of Göttingen, and DAAD University Advisor to Vietnam National University of Forestry in Xuan Mai.

The event is open for all interested guests and students.
