This is your chance to catch a preview of our latest cross-disciplinary research. The Vlerick Research Brown Bags are full of inspiring and innovative findings and provide excellent opportunities for sharing research practice.
Follow the brown bags free of charge via videoconferencing from our Ghent, Brussels or Leuven campus. The sessions are held once a month from 12.30 pm to 2 pm and are open to all researchers and faculty from Vlerick Business School, our parent universities and other academic institutions.
This month’s session is chaired by Sara De Hauw, Yuliya Shymko and Eva Cools and focuses on “The ethics of scientific research: a critical look at current research practices”.
Some recent scandals (e.g. the Stapel case) created a heated discussion in the academic world about the ethics of scientific research that even made it into the news. As a consequence, various professional movements are taking place across different disciplines to shed light on questionable research practices and (re)define the basis of good research.
This session aims to open up this debate within Vlerick, focusing on three broad issues:
- individual research practices: what is not being disclosed about data, subjects and analyses
- institutional conditions: stimulating to cheat or an easy excuse?
This session takes place in room M 1.4 at our Ghent campus and can be followed through video conference at our Leuven (A 2.04) and Brussels (B 3.10) campus.
