Achieving and maintaining the highest standards for research ethics, including scientific integrity, are central responsibilities of research performing organizations and institutions of higher education today.
To meet these responsibilities, TU Research Ethics Coordination has been set up in the RTI Support (Research, Technology, Innovation) to offer a service in questions relating to research ethics for the entire university, from university management, institutes and faculties to individual researchers and students.
Principles of scientific integrity and commonly accepted ethical principles govern all research activities which seek to contribute to increasing knowledge and/or fostering innovation. Principles of scientific integrity include reliability, honesty, respect and accountability. Good research follows the principles of respect for autonomy and integrity, beneficence (doing good), non-maleficence (avoiding harm), and justice.
