Events & Training

To create and share knowledge of best practice and positive research culture and conduct, UKRIO operates a comprehensive events programme.

Our charity is the trusted source for up-to-date education, development, and dissemination around research integrity best practice, providing access to a mix of events covering informative topics, updates for the research community and opportunities for peer learning.

We have been holding annual research integrity conferences since 2013 and they are the premier UK research integrity events. We supplement our annual conferences – which are free and open to all – with a wide variety of other events: regular webinars on research integrity, roundtables on particular issues and challenges, events for our many subscriber organisations, and more.


UKRIO 2023 Annual Conference

Our 2023 conference on ‘culture and confidence‘ discussed how we can create a culture and systems that promote high-quality, ethical research, featuring keynote talks from Petra Boynton, Consultant, The Research Companion and Dr Ivan Oransky, Retraction Watch.

Training and development

UKRIO undertakes a wide variety of activities tailored to meet the needs of our network of over 120 subscribing institutions, informed by our unmatched practical experience. Our charity aims to provide in-depth and long-term support for its subscribers to support them to authentically embed a culture of research integrity. A key part of this are our training and development activities, some of which are also available to non-subscribing organisations.

We work closely with the research community to understand the fundamental challenges it faces. Our training and development activities are available to everyone involved in research at an organisation, from the senior leadership team to those just starting their research careers.

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.
