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.
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.

The theme of our charity’s 2022 conference was ‘Good research practice: culture, environment and sustainability’ and featured expert speakers such as Sir Patrick Vallance, Government Chief Scientific Adviser, Dr Elisabeth Bik, winner of the 2021 John Maddox Prize, Professor Astrid Eichhorn, chair of the ALLEA Working Group Climate Sustainability in the Academic System, and Professor James Wilsdon, Director, Research on Research Institute (RoRI).
