    The EUA Council for Doctoral Education is pleased to announce that the 10th EUA-CDE thematic workshop will focus on ethics and integrity in doctoral education and research training. The event will be hosted by the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, Lisbon, Portugal, 18-19 January 2017.

    Developing an ethos of research integrity has been highlighted by EUA-CDE as one of the main challenges that have appeared in the academic landscape in the past five years. As social awareness of this issue continues to grow, universities are confronted with new ethical questions brought by digitalisation. Moreover, the increasing pressure on young researchers to publish has started to impact and compromise good practices in research conduct.

    The thematic workshop will promote an exchange of ideas on the shared responsibility between staff on all institutional levels to train young researchers in good research ethics and integrity. While supervisors will continue to play a key role in passing on good research conduct, there is a clear need for a more structured approach that is supported by university leadership and implemented by management and supporting staff. This includes the availability of training courses, a supportive work environment and conducive institutional strategies.

    The thematic workshop is open only to EUA-CDE members. It brings together and promotes exchanges between university leaders, vice-rectors, deans and heads of doctoral schools, researchers, administrators and other stakeholders interested in the development of doctoral education. The workshop is a forum for discussing new and exciting ideas in the field of doctoral education, exchanging experiences, mutual learning and building new partnerships and collaborations during the many networking opportunities.

  • About the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa

    Rectory_(copyright Universidade NOVA de Lisboa Rectory)Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (NOVA) was founded in 1973. It is a public university comprised of different campuses within the Lisbon metropolitan area. NOVA currently has about 19.800 students and 1.700 teachers and researchers, distributed over nine schools (academic units), providing Portuguese and foreign students with a wide range of courses in all fields of knowledge.

    The excellent quality of research in many areas is a cornerstone in the international culture of NOVA. In addition to intense exchanges in Europe and North-America , NOVA also develops cooperation ties with Brazil and other Portuguese-speaking countries.

    The singularity of the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa lies in its respect for the individuality of the academic units, each having acquired specific prestige within the NOVA key values of freedom, diversity and tolerance. The clear choice for a unique but diversified identity, working not only as a network of institutions but also of projects, people and resources, characterises NOVA as a university open to the community and to the world.

    NOVA’s strategic plan for 2012-2016 embraced the creation of a Doctoral School aiming to promote quality, interdisciplinary education and the internationalisation of the university’s doctoral programmes. Without interfering with the structured PhD programmes of each academic unit, the transversal courses offered by NOVA Doctoral School aim to reinforce personal and professional development of PhD students and supervisors through transferable skills training. The courses take place in the various campuses of NOVA. They are voluntary and free of charge for the students and supervisors and the classes integrate participants with diverse scientific backgrounds, coming from all the different academic units.

    About Lisbon

    lisbon-021-720x380Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal and lies on the north bank of the Tagus estuary where it broadens to enter the Atlantic Ocean. Lisbon is Portugal’s largest city and its cultural, administrative, commercial and industrial hub. The name comes from “Olissipo”, which has its origins in the Phoenician words “Allis Ubbo”, meaning “enchanting port”. Built on seven hills overlooking the Tagus river, Lisbon is a historic capital where 800 years of cultural influences mingle with modern trends and life styles creating spectacular contrasts.

    Lisbon is a dynamic and cosmopolitan city, with a mild climate all year round, where visitors can enjoy the colourful districts, the yellow trams that run along the cobblestoned streets and explore historic monuments and museums.

    Lisbon also has a vibrant night life and a rich musical culture, of which Fado, the urban popular song of Portugal is the highlight, recognised by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2011.
