On October 25, the Ethics Committee of the University of Barcelona was created. The director of the Committee, Norbert Bilbeny, professor of Ethics, says they “start with the will to work effectively, at the service of the UB” and that their first task will be the creation of a code of scientific integrity for the university community.

Norbert Bilbeny notes that such a code is pioneer in the Catalan universities, and it is an experience that can be used as a reference. He also states it will not be “a kind of declaration of aims, but it has to remind us about the criteria of good work”. First, a working group will be created to work on a draft for a code of ethics, which will be submitted to the Committee and the final paper will be handed in to the rector of the UB.

The Ethics Committee is integrated by the president, Norbert Bilbeny; the secretary-general and the UB ombudsman, Maria Belén and Lluís Caballol respectively; Maria Casado, member of the Bioethics Commission of the UB; professors Victòria Camps, Jordi Capo, Miquel Angel Cuevas, Teresa Estrach, Montserrat Guillén and Miquel Martínez; Núria Aymeric, from the Board of Trustees of the UB; Laura Delgado, coordinator of the Student Council; Ignasi Labastida, from CRAI Library; and the head of the Office of Internal Control, Risks and Corporate Social Responsibility of the UB, Maurici Romero.
