Code of Conduct and Ethical Behaviour of the Pierre Auger Collaboration
Please find here the complete
Code of Conduct and Ethical Behaviour of the Pierre Auger Collaboration.
This Code of Conduct was derived from the Code of Conduct and Ethical Behaviour of other organizations,
in particular the CERN Code of Conduct and the KM3NeT Code of Conduct and Ethical Behaviour.
The Pierre Auger Collaboration is a diverse community of scientists, engineers, technicians, students, administrative and support staff from different backgrounds, countries and cultures, brought together by common scientific interests. The Collaboration considers the diversity of its composition as a strength to be nurtured, values the participation of every member of its community and is committed to provide a professional and welcoming place for everybody.
To guarantee a fulfilling experience for all, in a work environment that is professional and free from all forms of discrimination, harassment and retaliation, the Collaboration has developed a code in which we state the shared rules of good conduct by which all members are expected to abide.
This Code of Conduct applies to all community situations online and offline, including mailing lists, forums, social media, workshops, conferences, meetings, associated social events and one-to-one interactions. It serves as a guide for scientific integrity and inclusive behaviour in the working environment of the Pierre Auger Collaboration.
We are committed to providing an environment that encourages the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas and to guarantee the equality of opportunity and treatment for all members. We promote a high standard of integrity in the performance of our work and in our relationships with others to build a culture of trust and responsibility.
We acknowledge that our collective commitment to creating a positive work environment and to act ethically in the conduct of our activities is essential both to the achievement of the scientific goals of the Collaboration and the protection of its reputation.
