The kickoff meeting of Integrity was held on 13th-14th February 2019 in the beautiful city of Utrecht, Netherlands. The project officially started on January 1st 2019 with the collaboration of 11 partners from 9 European countries.
During its 36 months’ (3 years) duration, the Integrity project not only will combine high quality training in research integrity with innovative modes of engagement but also bring ethics alive, equipping the next generation of researchers with the capabilities to conduct research in a responsible manner and to address new and unforeseen research challenges.
During the kickoff meeting, relationships between the partners were strengthened and cross-disciplinary bridges between sociologists, psychologists, philosophers and professionals from informatics and communication were established. In addition, administrative issues were clarified, and an action plan was made regarding the tasks of each partner for the following 6-8 months.
