NEW OMBUDSMAN OFFICE FOR ENSURING GOOD SCIENTIFIC PRACTICE AT THE FH BFI VIENNA

The FH BFI Vienna has been a member of the Austrian Agency for Research Integrity (OeAWI) since 2012 and has thereby committed to report particularly grave cases of scientific misconduct and to further develop scientific quality control.

With the foundation of its new Ombudsman Office for ensuring good scientific practice, which is the first of its kind within the Austrian FH sector, the FH BFI Vienna takes a further step towards quality leadership. The Ombudsman Office is the point of contact for scientific misconduct by both students and full-time teaching and research staff.

The Ombudsman Office consists of members of the Quality Circle Research and Development (R&D) and is led by the Head of the FH Supervisory Council. The Ombudsman Office for scientific misconduct meets as needed, but at least once a year.
