UKRIO launches online course: Introduction to Research Integrity

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new online training course, Introduction to Research Integrity, and are giving subscribers free 12-month access as part of its pilot phase.

About the course

Research Integrity training is now a mandatory requirement for receipt of grant funding from many funders. It is also a key way to promote and safeguard positive research cultures and environments, an aspect of higher education providers which will receive greater focus in the upcoming Research Excellence Framework (REF) in 2029.

To meet this need, UKRIO has worked with University College London to develop an online training course that provides a thorough introduction to research integrity. The course is applicable to all disciplines and provides a comprehensive grounding in research integrity for those new to the topic as well as an essential refresher for more experienced staff.
