E-learning – “Introduction to Research Ethics”

As part of efforts to strengthen research ethics at UiB and ensure good familiarity with basic research ethical norms and guidelines, the e-learning course “Introduction to Research Ethics” has been developed. The course aims to provide employees in scientific positions with knowledge of the responsibility both the institution and the individual have to ensure that research is ethically sound. It also provides information on how the University of Bergen handles cases of possible scientific misconduct and how to report such cases. The course is mandatory for employees in scientific positions.

The course is available in Norwegian and English and takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. Link to the course: “Introduction to Research Ethics”:

HSE non-conformities

Reporting on adverse events in an incident report is important for the continuous HSE work at K2. When we report incidents, it helps to reduce the extent of damage, prevent new events, and raise awareness. Incident reports can also lead to changes in, among other things, routines and infrastructure. The incident reports are also reviewed by the faculty’s HSE committee and the Working Environment Committee at UiB.

Therefore, everyone is encouraged to report HSE incidents.

Visit this page and familiarize yourself with how to report HSE incidents and why this is important:https://www.uib.no/en/hms-portalen/147849/report-hse-non-conformities#what-are-hse-non-conformities-

Note: Damages to buildings owned by HUS should not be reported here. Please report them to the Facilities Management/Technical Customer Center at 77100@helse-bergen.no
