Research and PhD in Germany – Research Ethics

A Digital Event for Prospective PhD Candidates, PhD Candidates and Postdocs

The series of events “Research and PhD in Germany“ focuses on the needs of international PhD candidates and postdocs at the University of Koblenz-Landau. Various topics and conditions of researching and living in Germany are introduced and discussed during the events.

This presentation makes the topic “Research Ethics“ a subject of discussion and will focus on two main parts: general and applied research ethics. In the first part ethical foundations and issues of research in general will be analysed: When is an issue of ethical concern? Do the ends justify the means? What are fundamental ethical principles, criteria, and virtues in research?

The second part covers several areas of applied research ethics, in particular medical research, animal testing, and internet research. In this context, medical research ethics serves as a template. Its principles are set in the Nuremberg Code, which aims to protect human subjects from cruelty and abuse. Animal testing is a contested issue. The view that testing on sentient animals is permissible as long as utilitarian principles like "reduce, refine and replace" are met, will be challenged in this presentation. The participants will also get the opportunity to reflect their own research and to talk about research ethics in their fields. 



In cooperation with STIBET funded by the DAAD with financial means of the German Federal Foreign Office
