About the Program

The VIRT2UE Train the Trainer program is a methodologically sound and didactically innovative train the trainer program for ethics and research integrity trainers. 

We invite *Scandinavia-based researchers – researchers based in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland – to register for our new blended-learning program.

Using a virtue ethics approach to ERI, the program aims to foster the internalization of the principles of European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity (ECoC), and thus to facilitate the cultivation of scientific virtues among trainers and researchers.

Unlike the vast majority of existing programs, VIRT2UE rests on the premise that effective ERI training should not only convey knowledge of codes and regulations, but must also address moral character building, in order to enable researchers to master challenges they are likely to encounter over the course of their academic career.

Requirements and certification

By registering for the VIRT2UE train the trainer program you have the opportunity to become a certified trainer in the field of ERI. Trainers who participate in the VIRT2UE train-the-trainer program will receive a certificate if they have trained ten further trainers. This can either be done during the interim period, when the exercises are applied in practice, or after finishing the program.


You will not be charged a participation fee. However, you will have to cover travel and accommodation costs yourself.

Where will the face to face trainings take place?

The trainings will take place at the Centre for Medical Ethics of the University of Oslo. The Centre is located at the Frederik Holsts Hus, Kirkeveien 166, Oslo, Norway.
