Summary of the initiative

Name of Private Regulator: 
European Science Foundation
Website(s) : 
ESF plays a significant role in promoting the highest levels of scientific integrity and better self-regulation across Europe. At a strategic level, there is a need for more commonality in codes of good scientific practice, in the effective managing and monitoring of those standards and in developing transparent procedures for investigating allegations of scientific misconduct. Pan-European progress in these areas would improve quality assurance, strengthen the self-regulation of science and help reinforce public trust in science. This document is superseded by the European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity.
