The BRIDGE project seeks to develop new, open and innovative educational resources to properly address issues of academic integrity in research, business and society among society among master and doctoral students, and their supervisors. Considering that research malpractices are mainly done by graduate and doctoral students in higher education institutions, when they usually start researching, the primary effort for academic and research integrity should be directed towards them as future researchers who are at the beginning of their careers.
The leader of the project consortium consisting of six European institutions will be one of the top ranked research universities in the world, Uppsala University in Sweden.
Other project partners are: South East European University (Northern Macedonia), Mendel University (Brno, Czech Republic), Kherson National Technical University (Ukraine), Lithuanian Center for Social Research (Lithuania), Office of the Ombudsman for Academic Ethics and Procedures of the Republic of Lithuania (Lithuania).
The project will last three years.
