Research Code

Research Code

Research integrity plays a vital role in allowing scientific research to function properly. The reputation and the reliability of scientific research depend on the individual actions of every researcher.

Guiding principles for research with integrity are honesty, scrupulousness, transparency, independence and responsibility as described in the Dutch Code of Conduct for Research Integrity:

To promote and maintain a research environment marked by integrity, UMC Utrecht endorses the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity and expects that all researchers at the UMC Utrecht work accordingly. The principles in this code are in line with the core values and principles as described in the general code of conduct of the UMC Utrecht, which applies to all employees of the UMC Utrecht.

More information about behavior, a pleasant and safe workplace, see the This is Us program of the UMC Utrecht.
