UKRIO 2014 annual conference

In May 2014, UKRIO held the second annual conference for its subscribers and invited guests.

Speakers from UKRIO and other experts in research integrity discussed how to promote and sustain good research practice, and how to avoid common issues and pitfalls, drawing on UKRIO’s unique and extensive experience. The conference provided a forum for delegates to discuss the issues which mattered to them and share their own experiences, as well as seek advice from UKRIO.

Feedback on the event was very positive and we look forward to building on its successes at our next conference in 2015.
