Good Scientific Practce - Intensive Course 

Working in Science is very satisfying. You work on a topic you are passionate about. You have a lot of freedom organizing your workday and the research process. But freedom always goes along with responsibility - including responsibility to make sure your process and results are based on the rules of Good Scientific Practice (GSP). 

The intensive course Good Scientific Practice introduces to the most important aspects related to GSP: EU standards (code of conduct), confirmation biases, critical thinking, hierarchy and communication in science, values and dealing with publication pressure. - Topics that are not directly related to your research topic but have an impact on the quality of the outcome and on collaboration with other researchers. After the course you will continue your research still with passion and now with confidence as you know what is necessary to do "good" research.

Whom does it address?

Doctoral Candidates and Postdocs in their early postdoc phase who want to improve the quality of their research and learn more about GSP.
