Back Call for Best Practices in Promoting Academic Integrity during COVID-19

Are you a higher education institution actively working on promoting academic integrity? Have you found solutions to promote/safeguard academic integrity during COVID-19?

The Council of Europe Education Department has opened a call for best practices in promoting academic integrity in higher education institutions in Europe under its new Best Practice Programme. The call focuses on solutions found to promote academic integrity during the COVID-19 crisis in the following categories:

  • Teaching and learning
  • Policy
  • Procedures
  • Communication
  • Governance/structures
  • Training


Who can apply?

Higher education institutions recognised as belonging to the education system of one of the 50 States parties to the European Cultural Convention, as well as student unions, are eligible to apply.


How to apply?

See the application procedure and the list of documents to be provided under Section VI "How to Apply?" of the Call for Applications.

Applicants shall fill in relevant details and information, and send all documents in English or French in electronic form (Word and/or PDF) to the following e-mail address: [email protected]

Applications must be received before 20 September 2021 (at 23:59 CEST). Applications received after the above-mentioned date will not be considered. Emails should contain the following reference in subject: “Call for Best Practices in Promoting Academic Integrity during COVID-19”

Responding to this call will give higher education institutions the opportunity to showcase and publicise their practices, bring attention to them, and maybe even inspire others. The selected cases will be published and disseminated, and an award ceremony will be organised in Strasbourg or online in late autumn 2021.
