On 5th May, the city of Montreal will host the third World Conference on Research Integrity.
Professor Michael Farthing, Vice-Chair of UKRIO, will give one of the keynote addresses at the Conference, while Dr Liz Wager of our Advisory Board will present recent research.
Colleagues from the European Network of Research Integrity Offices, of which UKRIO is a founder member, will hold sessions on a variety of research integrity issues and challenges.
The first two World Conferences, held in Lisbon and Singapore respectively, made invaluable contributions to the promotion of research integrity and brought together professionals from across the globe to share experiences, lessons learned and best practice. Delegates at the second World Conference produced the Singapore Statement on Research Integrity and next year’s event promises to make an equally valuable contribution to the integrity of global research.
Further information can be found on the conference website.
