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.
Coronavirus/COVID-19: UKRIO is following the advice of Public Health England (PHE) and the UK Government. All UKRIO events will be conducted virtually until further notice. Support and services that the charity normally provides face-to-face are being delivered through other means, primarily virtually.
Virtual research integrity events
UKRIO is holding webinars on research integrity and related issues. Speakers from UKRIO and invited experts will explore topics such as publication ethics and authorship; research data; implementation of the Concordat to Support Research Integrity; research ethics; consent in research; and research integrity training. Our webinars are open to all and are free to attend.
Videos and slides from past webinars
We have been holding our monthly research integrity webinars since May 2020. To see videos and presentation slides from previous webinars, please visit this page. New videos and slides are added regularly, so do check back for updates.
Annual Conference 2022
After the success of our 2021 fully virtual conference, we are inviting you to ‘save the date’ 25th and 26th May 2022 for our next Annual conference.
Much like last year’s conference, 2022 is to be held over two days in May and will be free and open to all.
We had over 800 people attend our virtual event which explored research integrity under the theme of ‘Good Research Practice in a Changing World’. This year’s first day was opened by Professor Dame Ottoline Leyser, the Chief Executive of UK Research & Innovation and Regius Professor of Botany at the University of Cambridge.
Tracey Brown OBE, Director of Sense About Science and a Trustee of UKRIO, opened the second day of the conference, sharing her perspective on good research practice and communication of research.
Our 2022 conference is set to be another thought-provoking event with speakers from across the research community gathering to discuss key topics in research integrity, ranging from how to safeguard and enhance good research practice, how to address specific challenges and issues, improving the culture of research in teams and at institutions, and looking at systemic issues in the research system.
Other in-person training sessions
In light of coronavirus/COVID19, our other in-person training sessions have also been postponed. As noted earlier, events, support and services that our charity normally provides face-to-face are being delivered through other means.
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.
