UKRIO’s annual conferences promote good practice in academic, scientific and medical research. Through keynote speakers, workshop sessions and networking, experts in research integrity discuss how to promote and sustain quality and high ethical standards in research, and how to avoid common issues and pitfalls. A programme for the event is available here.

This year’s conference will take place on Wednesday 10th May 2017 in central London. The focus will be on how to support a culture of high quality and ethical research; how to address poor practice; and how the research community should respond to developments in research integrity. The conference will also provide a forum for subscribers to discuss the issues which matter to them and share their own experiences.
