Guidelines on the responsible use of generative AI in research


The European Commission, together with countries and stakeholders represented in the ERA forum, has developed a set of recommendations for the European scientific community, designed to facilitate the responsible use of generative artificial intelligence tools, such as ChatGPT.

These tools are rapidly transforming a range of fields, including science, and their influence is expected to continue to grow. While they bring many undeniable benefits, it is also necessary to be aware of their limitations and the challenges they pose.

The guide created is the result of collaborative work and aims to unify different ideas and set directions for those who use AI in science. The guide supports the adoption of generative AI in the scientific community while considering the need for a responsible approach.

The guide will be regularly updated to reflect the rapid technological development in the field of artificial intelligence.

The Commission calls on the scientific community to contribute their views and ideas on how to improve future versions of the guide through a feedback form.
