The projects EnTIRE and VIRT2UE, both funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, have created a fully editable wiki platform on ethics and research integrity: The Embassy of Good Science. The Embassy of Good Science is a place where researchers can meet and build a collective knowledge base. Since the platform runs on the same software as Wikipedia, everyone can make a contribution, small or large, to build a trusted, transparent and collective knowledge base of the best tools and information for researchers, by researchers. You can now add, edit, share, discuss, search, filter and more on https://embassy.science. You can also follow the Embassy of Good Science on Twitter @EmbassySci and LinkedIn.
