Plan to build research ethics framework

The European Science Foundation is coordinating a project with 13 other organisations to build an ethics and integrity framework for all non-medical research.

The project, called Pro-res, has been backed with €2.8 million from Horizon 2020, the ESF announced on 25 April. It involves a broad range of contributors and aims to bring together existing best practice guidance, the ESF said.

“The Pro-res framework will not seek to ‘reinvent the wheel’ since many excellent codes, guidelines and frameworks already exist,” said ESF science officer Emmanouil Detsis, who is deputy coordinator of the project. “Our main tasks will be to gather all relevant work, consult with the right stakeholders, extract the common threads and synthesise it to a coherent and easy to understand whole.”
