The Austrian Agency for Research Integrity (OeAWI) was initiated in 2008 as a registered non-profit society. Today it has a total of 38 member institutions, in particular all Austrian universities, universities of applied sciences and various non-university research and funding institutions.
The agency is aiming to prevent questionable and unacceptable research practices (at best research misconduct) and to raise awareness by offering lectures and workshops on "good scientific practice" to its member institutions. Additionally, the agency provides advice to its members in all matters related to research integrity.
Furthermore, the agency is responsible for investigating alleged cases of research misconduct in Austria in a professional manner, evaluating the severity of each violation and proposing consequential measures with the first two tasks being assigned to the Commission for Research Integrity, an independent body consisting of distinguished non-Austrian scholars.
The Austrian Agency is project partner in a Horizon 2020 project with the aim to develop a sustainable train-the-trainer blended learning programme for teaching across Europe, focusing on understanding and upholding the principles of the European Code of Conduct (ECoC). The learning programme will provide a toolbox of educational resources and incorporate an innovative online course with face-to-face sessions designed to foster moral virtues, and apply the content of the teaching material to concrete situations.
