A one-day workshop on research integrity will use an online course the students will engage with pre-arrival.

Students will explore their attitudes to real-world case studies from geography and environmental science where the impact of ethics and integrity within the research process start to present unexpected outcomes. Through this experiential learning approach, students will be able to contextualize their own research within the framework of research integrity. ESRs will also undergo comprehensive project-management training which will be integral in the management of their projects. A one-day workshop on Open Science to facilitate information sharing will cover digital training in collaborative tools, open access (data and publications) and public engagement.

This workshop will also introduce ESRs to the FAIR data management principles that make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable (required to ensure the success of the datathon event in month 19, and general good working practice).
