The ECBE just published the Ethics Game

Scientific misconduct is often portrayed as resulting from a few bad apples. In reality, however, almost all people involved in research finds it at times difficult to make the right decisions. To help you better understand the ethical challenges that you can run into as a researcher, and to help you develop skills to deal with these challenges, the ECBE developed the Ethics game.

The Ethics Game is an interactive animated game in which you play the role of a PhD student who just started his/her project at a leading research institution. Very soon, you learn that not only your own project presents important ethical challenges but also that those you work with present challenges in their own right.

Playing the game is free! This link brings you directly to the Ethics Game:  http://www.ethicsgame.nl/play/login/index.php. Use enrolment key 'Enrol2TheGame' to start the game.
