When students study research integrity in a traditional way, they may learn how the subject helps them on an individual level in their own scientific projects, while still underestimating the relevance of research integrity for a knowledge-based society, both within and outside the scientific research. In order to help open this door for students into an honest, reliable, respectful, and accountable scientific community, the Horizon2020 project Path2Integrity was established in January 2019 to...

The best science communicators spend their days sweating, straining, and trying to keep their balance as they climb up and down a wobbly ladder. They engage audiences by relating scientific concepts to concrete, visceral experience along what Canadian-born linguist Sam Hayakawa termed "the ladder of abstraction." Sometimes the task lies in communicating an intellectual concept through a down-to-earth illustration at the foot of the ladder. Other times, a personal experience...
