Annual Conference 2022

Annual Conference 2022: ‘Good research practice: culture, environment and sustainability’

The theme of our charity’s 2022 conference was ‘Good research practice: culture, environment and sustainability’Speakers from across the research community came together to discuss key topics in research integrity such as, how do we make sure research is high quality and of high ethical standards during these challenging times? How can we ensure rigour and reproducibility, adapt to new ways of working, reduce waste in research, and respond to the wider issues facing society?

Conference sessions explored how the research community can work together to:

  • Safeguard and enhance good research practice.
  • Embed a culture of integrity in the research that we do, in the organisations in which we work, and in the systems which fund, monitor, assess and disseminate research.
  • Share perspectives and knowledge to support each other and to help ensure diversity and equality of participation.
  • Respond to global challenges such as sustainability and the impact of the ongoing pandemic.

Sir Patrick Vallance, Government Chief Scientific Adviser opened the second day of the conference, sharing his perspective on good research practice. Other keynote speakers were:
