The Mutual Learning Exercise on Research Integrity was launched in November, the European Commission announced on 4 December. It is looking at examples of national good practice in four priority areas: supporting transparency in research; incentives to prevent misconduct; spreading an integrity culture; and improving training for researchers at all career stages.
