The University of Caen Normandy is one of the signatories of the National Charter of Ethics for Research Professions adopted in January 2015 by the Conference of University Presidents (CPU) and all national research organizations. By signing this charter, the University of Caen Normandy undertakes to set up an institutional policy in terms of scientific integrity and to appoint a “scientific integrity referent”.
The President of the University has appointed Isabelle DEZ (UFR des Sciences) as referent for scientific integrity.
According to the Corvol Report , “scientific integrity is the conduct of integrity and honesty that must govern all research.” “Scientific integrity (…) is understood as the set of rules and values that must govern research activity, to guarantee its honest and scientifically rigorous nature” (MESR Circular No. 2017-040 of 15-3-2017).
