The European Science Foundation (ESF) announces the endorsement ofThe European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity by its Governing Council in Lisbon on 22-23 June 2011.

The code, which was launched at the World Conference on Research Integrity held in Singapore last July, was developed from a series of meetings and workshops involving the European Science Foundation Member Organisations which are 78 national funding bodies, research-performing agencies, academies and learned societies from 30 countries. They worked in close collaboration with the All European Academies (ALLEA). This code offers a reference point for all researchers, complementing existing codes of ethics and complying with national and European legislative frameworks.

Representing an agreement across 30 countries on a set of principles and priorities for self-regulation of the research community, it provides a possible model for a global code of conduct for all research.
