Code of Ethics
TU Delft strives to be articulate and explicit with respect to its ideals, values, principles and responsibilities. The aim of the Code of Ethics is to state our aspirations unambiguously, in such a way that those who are part of the TU Delft community can find inspiration and guidance in them. Also, those who collaborate with employees and students of TU Delft, and those who are about to join its workforce or student body, may better understand the goals of TU Delft and the ethical dilemmas that may play a role in achieving them.
A living document
The Code of Ethics has been expressly designed as a ‘living document’, which can be continually updated in response to new insights or topical issues. The Executive Board has announced in the Vision on Integrity that it is time to update the Code of Ethics, and has requested a working group under the lead of prof.dr. Sabine Roeser (TPM) to do so.
Other codes of conduct
Next to the Code of Ethics, TU Delft is bound to a number of other specific codes of conduct, such as the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity and the Code of Good Governance. The Code of Ethics is complementary to these codes of conduct.
