2017 annual conference

Our 2017 annual research integrity conference discussed how to support a culture of high quality and ethical research, how to promote research integrity in specific disciplines, and gave delegates the opportunity to contribute to developments in UK  research integrity.

We have received excellent feedback on the event. We look forward to working on the topics and themes identified at the conference, particularly those from the workshop sessions.
