The project team of the Practicing Integrity project and the DUN Special Interest Group on Higher Education Policy and Practice would like to invite you to a free seminar on Translations of Research Integrity.
The theme of the seminar is how research institutions work with constructing and maintaining institutional cultures of integrity in higher education. The development in Denmark – as well as many other countries across the world has been to develop policies and guidelines, both on supranational, national and organisational levels, specifying desired academic practices and procedures. However, there may a long way from policy to practice and we still know very little about integrity practices ‘on the floor’ of the academic institutions.
The aim of the seminar is to build bridges between the policy development and everyday lives and practices of researchers. In the seminar we hope to engage researchers and local policymakers in discussions about the challenges experienced on both sides in the ongoing work with and on research integrity. Additionally, through co-creative activities, we aim to explore tensions in the translations of formal policies into daily research practices and vice versa.
In the seminar we aim to bring together (i) researchers with an interest in research integrity or those facing particular research integrity challenges, (ii) institutional policymakers at research performing or research funding organisations, having research integrity in their portfolio.
Time and place: 9th of December 2021, from 11-16 at Aarhus University, Frederik Nielsens Vej 4, 8000 Aarhus C.
