Why we work
The overall goal of the PREPARED project is to develop an operational ethics and integrity framework, which safeguards key ethical values, supports a rapid and effective research response to crises and improves overall pandemic preparedness.
Our project is underscored by three pillars:
Recognize the broader perspective of a crisis
Global crises affect all aspects of humanity. We therefore cannot ignore human, social, economic and political contexts in our research ethics and integrity framework. A crisis reaching all of humanity needs everyone to tackle it.
Motivate to action with values
Rules alone do not motivate to action, but values do, which is why we develop a values-based framework for global crises.
Keep values understandable
Clear and simple values in an organization are proven to improve the motivation for ethical conduct at work, which is why we aim to align our framework with common sense moral values.
