Ethics in research and postgraduate education – a concern for all of Lund University


As a researcher, it is a privilege to be able to delve into both theory and empirical evidence and freely define research aims and questions. This means great opportunities to develop and contribute to research but also comes with the responsibility to follow research ethics principles and good research practice.

About the seminar

In this seminar you will learn about the most important things about the ethical review process (why it exists and what it requires), how different legal frameworks and regulations relate to each other and what good research practice means.

You will also learn what researchers need to know about ethics in the context of online research, which is becoming increasingly relevant. There will be three expert talks and ample time for you to ask question to the speakers.

The seminar will be held in English. It is part of the LU-wide initiative "Professionalisation of the supervisor role" for training of research supervisors.
