Code of Conduct

In November 2018, the Board of Trustees of the CERCA Institution approved the Code of Conduct for CERCA centres with a broad consensus and after many contributions from the different institutions represented.

This document fills an important gap that our system of centres had and provides stimulus and guarantees of well-done work in aspects of transparency, open access to data and results, management of industrial property, scientific integrity, relationship with the media, among others.

The Code of Conduct must be approved by the highest governing body of each CERCA centre and, subsequently, the director and manager of each entity must sign its adhesion and implement the internal mechanisms to guarantee its compliance.
