When performing research and communicating the findings and conclusions scientists may be confronted with ethical dilemmas, some which they at first had not expected to be confronted. The question accordingly is how to deal with these dilemmas. This requires an insight in the ethical values and how these can be interpreted in the scientific context.
This course focuses on ethical issues that are encountered when doing research in plant and environmental sciences. It includes hands-on dealings with ethical, philosophical, and societal issues surrounding science.
After identifying ethical principles we focus on some cases that scientists have experienced in their career. Accordingly participants are split into groups in which personal experiences, dilemmas or ethical questions regarding the PhD research are dealt with in an interactive workshop.
