Talk: It is time that funders take responsibility for RI? – 6 ways how they can follow suit
Various stakeholders in science have put research integrity high on their agenda. Among them, research funders are in pole position to incentivize responsible research practices; researchers are dependent on funding and will follow the requirements funders make. However, this is not common practice yet. In this talk, I highlight that funder can develop and implement a Research Integrity Promotion Plan RIPP), emphasize what core topics can be addressed by funders to foster RI and zoom in on what other measures (randomized grant allocation, evaluation criteria) funders can implement to guide funders towards strengthening RI-policy in their own organisations.
