The training on research integrity developed by University of Bordeaux, in partnership with the CPU, COMETS-CNRS, INSERM and INRA, has been followed by doctoral students at the University of Bordeaux since 2017 and deployed in 2018 in other institutions including Aix-Marseille University, the University of Lorraine, the Muséum national d'Histoire Naturelle and AgroParisTech.

Nearly 1500 doctoral students have already validated this distance learning course, which aims to spread a culture of research integrity within universities and research institutions. Of the 369 doctoral students from Bordeaux and Aix-Marseille who answered the 2018 training evaluation questionnaire, 85% considered it useful and 89% considered they had acquired new knowledge. Following these feedbacks, a new version has been designed: denser, more funny (with a film section) and updated.

This new version becomes a MOOC "Research integrity in scientific professions" on the France Université Numérique (FUN) platform. It is available in two languages: French or English (with subtitles).

Fully committed to a process of research integrity, University of Bordeaux invites all its doctoral students to register on FUN:

Young researchers and professors who join University of Bordeaux research units are also invited to follow this training.

The first session starts on 7 November 2018.
