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.
UKRIO is holding monthly 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.

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.
Research Ethics Committee Members regional workshops
UKRIO offers a range of training sessions for Chairs and Members of research ethics committees (RECs) and researchers. As well as bespoke sessions for individual UKRIO subscriber institutions, we also run workshops which can be attended by REC Chairs and Members from any organisation, whether they subscribe to UKRIO or not.
You do not have to be a member of the host organisation to attend a workshop. We are working with a variety of host organisations across the UK, so sooner or later there will be a workshop near you.
Our Research Ethics Regional Training Workshops scheduled for 27 May, hosted by the University of St Andrews, and 6 July, hosted by Nottingham Trent University, have been postponed. Further information will be provided in due course.
We are happy to provide full refunds of delegate fees, transfer bookings to the new date of the Workshops once they have been rearranged or, if delegates are unable to attend on the new date, transfer their place to a colleague of their choice. Please contact us for further information.
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.
Information on a selection of past UKRIO events, such as our 2019 annual conference, can be found on Annual Conference and Training & Workshops pages.
