The IIB Sant Pau Renews Its Code of Good Practices in Research

The Research Institute of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau – IIB Sant Pau has updated its Code of Good Practices in Research (CBPR-IIB), a tool that establishes guidelines for the development of scientific activity at the IIB Sant Pau. This code is a collective regulatory instrument that provides rules, recommendations, and commitments that should be considered by the scientific staff affiliated with the institution.

Its content complements the provisions of the current legal norms in this area and has been designed by the head of the RRI unit, Ma Rosa Ballester; reviewed by the Internal Scientific Committee, and approved by the External Scientific Committee, the Scientific Directorate, and the Governing Council of the IIB Sant Pau.

As a CERCA center, the IIB Sant Pau adheres to the Code of Conduct of this institution and follows the guidelines of the European Charter for Researchers regarding the roles and responsibilities of researchers and institutions in the research process and human resources.


The update of the Code of Good Practices in Research is part of the actions included in the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) Plan, within the scope of the ethics agenda of this plan, together with the creation of the Integrity Committee for Research or the appointment of the ombudsperson of the IIB Sant Pau, among others.

The RRI Plan of the IIB Sant Pau aims to guide all professionals so that they can conduct research and innovation by applying the principles of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). The actions and proposals that we undertake from the IIB Sant Pau in relation to each of the RRI agendas are also available for consultation at this link.
