Code of conduct for Oxford Nanopore events

Oxford Nanopore events: an environment for scientific collaboration

Oxford Nanopore Technologies is committed to advancing science through the exchange of ideas and community engagement. A core component in achieving this is through events. At events that Oxford Nanopore hosts, we aim to foster an environment conducive to innovation and collaborative success and encourage the free exchange of ideas among all attendees. We actively seek balance of invited speakers, across gender and ethnicity, and support scientists at all stages of their career. To get the most out of our organised events, we make these requests of attendees:

Exchange science: we create spaces for a diverse scientific community to exchange and discuss ideas - for all views to be heard, including differing opinions.

Build connections: we love to bring together scientists with goals in common, and invite attendees to collaborate with each other.

Respect boundaries: whether networking over coffee or cocktails, we expect all attendees to behave in a manner that fosters respect. Unprofessional behaviour will not be tolerated and may result in removal from the event.
