    For PREFET, I’m here on behalf of FCRi, which or Research and Innovation (FCRi) participates as a partner in the European project, Path2Integrity , which is three years long and aims to improve the integrity of scientific research. The initiative, funded by the European Union within the Horizon 2020 Programme, aims to promote a culture known as Research Integrity (RI), through an informative campaign aimed at high school students, university students, and doctoral students and doctors. FCRi ensures the science communication and public engagement parts, understanding the key role RI plays in safeguarding the confidence of society in scientific research and, at the same time, in making it more reliable, efficient and useful for the population. All this in a context marked by spectacular scientific advances in areas such as biotechnology, nanotechnology or information technology. This project is framed in the current consideration by the EU of science, technology and innovation as one of the most promising ways to create jobs and improve the quality of life.
