Path2Integrity is a HORIZON 2020 project with the goal to maximize the quality and societal impact of research by fostering research integrity as an integral part of the research and innovation process. This will be done through supporting efficient formal and informal learning methods on research integrity targeting secondary school students, undergraduates, graduates, and young researchers, which will contribute to creating a culture of research integrity.


  • “Establish excellent learning paths with research integrity role-models and rotatory role-playing by developing and disseminating a Path2Integrity handbook of instruction;
  • Raise awareness of scientific facts about research integrity and role-models in educational organisations through a widespread Path2Integrity campaign;
  • Achieve wide-spread implementation of excellent learning paths, by using existing and successful educational practices as a foundation and international collaborations across four continents, along with robust assessment methods;
  • Create units for learning research integrity that address everyone either directly or indirectly involved in research, including secondary school students, undergraduates, graduates, and young researchers.”
