Confidential Counselors


ERIM has been doing its utmost to promote and provide an open, safe and inclusive research culture in which researchers feel comfortable not only to discuss research standards and dilemmas but also to hold each other accountable for compliance and report suspicions of non-compliance to dedicated confidential counsellors. ERIM has appointed four confidential counsellors. These nominations fit in the ERIM strive for an open academic and organisational culture for everyone in the School: research active faculty, non-research active faculty, doctoral students and professional staff alike. The open research culture is also continuously being stimulated via the above-mentioned workshops on Research Integrity and Professionalism and via the provision and dissemination of relevant regulations, instructions, protocols and other means to support researchers and help them understand good research practice.
