To preserve scientific integrity, the Board of Directors of the UMCG has drawn up a Research Code. The UMCG Research Code provides researchers and their supervisors with guidelines for conducting biomedical research in a correct and ethical fashion.
All UMCG employees who conduct research at the UMCG or elsewhere in the world are expected to be familiar with the Code and to act in accordance with its rules of conduct.
The Research Code is not a static document. It will be periodically amended to comply with changes in national and international legislation, insights and agreements. A "UMCG Research Code Committee" has been established to ensure that the Code is implemented. The current Research Code can be downloaded below.
