UKRIO contributes to the national and international promotion of integrity in research. This involves discussion of our work at conferences and other events, giving lectures and case study workshops, as well as articles in academic journals and in the press. We also hold our own events to support good research practice.


Future events: workshops on research integrity

UKRIO holds periodic workshops on specific aspects of research integrity. The workshops have a practical focus and cover promoting good practice within an organisation as well as responding to problems and concerns.

We will be holding the workshops primarily for those research organisations which have chosen to subscribe to UKRIO but  schedule additional events for non-subscribers if there is sufficient demand.

UKRIO welcomes suggestions on topics and issues that we might cover in our workshop programme. You can contact us using the form here.

A selection of presentations and other materials from the conference is available here.
