 Ethics


The University of Minho (UMinho) has a commitment to ethics. The UMinho Code of Ethical Conduct sets the norms and values that guide the University's mission in its teaching and learning activities, scientific research and in the institution's relationship with society. The University's ethics are grounded in the ethical principles of equity, justice, the respect for human dignity, and personal and professional responsibility.
 
In September 2011, the UMinho Ethics Commission (CEUM) was created. Its goal is to contribute towards ethical thinking and promote ethical policies. The Commission may work in both plenary meetings or in specific sub commissions. Currently, CEUM has a Subcommittee of Ethics for Life and Health Sciences (SECVS) and a Subcommittee of Ethics for Social and Human Sciences (SECSH). All issues pertaining to ethical matters, which are outside the scope of these sub commissions, specifically ethical assessments of projects should be forwarded to CEUM.
