The Ethics Working Group of the University of Oulu evokes discussion about ethical values and suggests ways of making those values visible. The Working Group also participates in the discussion of ethical education, supports faculties in establishing ethics committees and supports their operation, as well as organises and participates in events and meetings where ethical matters are discussed at a University level as well as on a national level. Additionally, the working group may assume special tasks during terms. For more information about the Ethics Working Group’s operation, visit https://www.oulu.fi/fi/etiikka
