The Coalition for the Advancement of Research Assessment’s Working Group on ‘Ethics and Research Integrity Policy in Responsible Research Assessment for Data and Artificial Intelligence (CoARA-ERIP)’ addresses the need for the integration of research ethics and research integrity into digital research practices and the evaluation of scientific research engaging digital transformative tools and (eventually) evaluated by AI. The primary objectives of ERIP are to develop policy, methods, and tools that contribute to ethical and responsible research assessment practices in the context of data and artificial intelligence (AI). This includes establishing principles and standards for the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data, as well as for AI and its eventual use the deployment of AI algorithms in research assessment processes. ERIP focuses on three area:
A.      ‘Detection of AI-generated fake data or writing raises concerns’   [questions of research ethics and research integrity]
B.     ‘Assessing data and AI research’   [how to value digital contributions to knowledge]
C.     ‘The use of data and AI in research assessment’    [how to assess in this new digital research environment]
ERIP applies a trans-disciplinary approach across academic and other research institutions throughout Europe and globally. ERIP strives to be a platform that promotes equity in the European and global research community. It engages the full range of scientific research, including students and junior and senior researchers, across all types of research institutions and sectors.

ERIP brings European and global stakeholders together in an open dialogue among researchers, policymakers, funding agencies, and other actors to further the development and implementation of ethical research assessment policies for data and AI.

ERIP improves innovation in research evaluation policy and its implementation across universities and other research institutions regarding the engagement with data and AI methods and tools in scientific research. ERIP engages the cutting edge of transformative technologies and their impact on practices in scientific research, its contributions and communication.

The EOSC-Future/RDA Artificial Intelligence and Data Visitation Working Group (AIDV-WG) has focused on addressing ethical, legal, and social challenges of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Visitation (DV) affecting of state-of-the art data technology impacting scientific exchange in the context of data sharing and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

Mission: The mission of the AIDV is to contribute to building the ethical, legal, social, and technical frameworks and bridges enabling the open sharing and re-use of data in the framework of Open Science.

Vision: The vision of the AIDV is to bring together expertise across disciplines and regions to ensure ameliorate the use of AI and DV in research and innovation across technologies and sectors to address the grand challenges of society.

Objectives The principal objective of AIDV is to examine the promises, challenges, and barriers to the use of AI in data sharing and Open Science having regard to scientists and research institutions as well as to policy and the interests of patients, communities, health advocates, and those stakeholders otherwise underrepresented in these important initiatives for Open Science.

Working to support the EOSC Future project and facilitate the implementation of EOSC across research communities, this AIDV examines interoperability issues arising across federated and non-federated systems. Particular attention is given to national and institutional policies (ethics/legal) and how they affect the generation of metadata and interdisciplinary work and cooperation.

The following work packages are being pursued by AIDV subteams:

·        A survey on current ethical, legal, policy, and societal frameworks for AI and DV

·        Guidance on legal considerations for AI and DV: a mapping of legal considerations for AI and DV as well as how to navigate legal frameworks for users of EOSC and other Open Science platforms.

·        Guidance for informed consent in AI and DV: The GDPR and other EU data and AI regulations as well as regulations in other jurisdictions have placed heavy emphasis on the role of informed consent in data sharing and data publication. This subteam examines the role of informed consent in AI and DV, addressing fundamental challenges to current informed consent frameworks and practices. The aim is to provide guidance for researchers and data controllers across disciplines regarding informed consent in AI and DV.

·        Guidance for ethics committees reviewing AI and DV: Ethics committees (RECs/IRBs/IECs) have been confronted by new challenges when encountering the need for advice on data management and data sharing as well as in other areas of data processing. The use of AI and DV, especially in health-related research, requires investigation regarding the ethical, legal, and social issues these raise for ethics committees and those submitting proposals for advice/approval to ethics committees. This subteam's guidance will assist ethics committees in understanding questions, methods, and procedures for reviewing AI and DV.

·        AI Bill of Rights: Underlying the growing application and use of AI and DV is a concern to ensure that data subjects are protected by these new technologies. The AIDV-WG subteam is drafting an RDA AI Bill of Rights that promotes fundamental human rights Recommendations Communique that advances trust in AI and federated systems for Open Science.

Logo Mpower.jpg
A healthy research culture supports the practice of responsible science. However, the role of (research) culture is often underestimated or difficult to change. The goal of the (em)power groups to improve research culture project is to improve research culture. To this end, we are developing in two years’ time a conversation tool that allows research groups/departments to think and reflect on responsible research with the aim of raising awareness about the influence of research culture on the behavior of scientists how (young) scientists can change this culture. This conversation tool will use a novel series of videos and will be tailored to the needs within various disciplinary fields at departmental level. By actively seeking out departments needs and by offering the developed tool at department or research group meetings, we aim to reach a large group of early career scientists to empower them to speak up.
NERQ is a new initiative that results from two EU projects, namely Path2Integrity and Integrity. NERQ stands for network for education in research quality, and takes a broad perspective on research quality, namely that high standards in research integrity, research ethics, open science and responsible research & innovation meet in training and courses for students and researchers throughout various stages of their career.
