Developing infrastructures

While RECs and RIOs are key actors in facilitating research ethics and integrity, there may be countries that lack infrastructures as well as training opportunities for actors in related key positions. This part collects components of an infrastructure and provides guidance in what to take into consideration when introducing elements into a developing infrastructure. These components draw on experiences and good practices from Europe and beyond. The sections address issues of definition, content, scope, stakeholders, and responsibilities. The aim is to support countries with developing infrastructures in ethics and integrity to consider the development of these in a holistic way. Therefore, also examples are provided as illustrations on practical implementation
