Good scientific practice

  • Develop investigative strategies/procedures/processes that take account of relevant scientific and other sources of information
  • Critically evaluate data, draw conclusions from it, formulate actions and recommend further investigations where appropriate
  • Beware of confirmation bias in planning, pursuing and analyzing experiments
  • Provide clear reports using appropriate methods of analysing, summarising and displaying information


  • Detoxify your language by using subjective I-statement
  • Be fair, balance, timely
  • Adapt to the situation
  • Be constructive and give always examples


A balanced and structured program of interactive lectures, challenging activities outside of the “comfort zone” and review sessions will provide a variety of first-hand learning situations allowing participants to identify and take away relevant lessons. Facilitators are habilitated scientists and successful group leaders in the natural sciences.

 Course venue:

The course is offered as an interactive virtual training course.
