Ethical Code of Behaviour

The University’s Ethical Code of Behaviour pools the principles that all members of the university community accept and share. These also apply to all who enter into relations with the University and share its values.

The new University Ethical Code of Behaviour gives effect to Art. 2, Sect. 1, of Law 240/2010, Art. 36 of the University Statute and D.P.R. 16/04/2013 n. 62 “regulation stating code of behaviour for state employees, as per Art. 54 of D.Lgs.vo 30/03/2001 n. 165, and has been in force since 1st November 2014.

The Code lays down the basic values of the university community and the rules for avoiding all forms of discrimination and abuse, as well as for regulating cases of conflict of interest and the area of intellectual property. It is a benchmark document providing an ethical framework for the University’s internal and external relations, and stands as a declaration of principles accepted and shared by teachers and researchers, managing and technical-administrative staff, students and all who enter into relations with the University and share its values.

The rules of Sect. III are in direct application of D.P.R. n. 62/2013 and define the behavioural obligations binding services activities.

Where compatible, these also extend to all forms of University collaborator and consultant. The same norms of behaviour, approved by the Board of Administration, apply, where compatible, to those working for firms carrying out works, or suppliers of goods and services, on behalf of the Administration.

Adoption of the Code of Behaviour forms one of the chief measures and ways of implementing the strategies for preventing corruption at a decentralised level, as outlined by Law n. 190 of 06/11/2012.

All members of the university community are equally responsible for upholding and applying in full the rules of the University Ethical Code of Behaviour.
