Since 2013, UKRIO’s annual conference has been an essential resource for the research community and policy makers, it is also the principal research integrity event in the UK.
Mid May 2021 will see UKRIO host its first Annual Conference virtually, due to UK Covid restrictions. This new method of delivery provides an opportunity for a 2-day conference filled with interactive workshops topics stemmed from the conference theme “Good Research Practice in a Changing World”.
Following the success of UKRIO’s monthly research integrity webinars, the decision to take our annual conference entirely online was a simple one. In its 8-year history, this free event will take place across two days, Wednesday 19 May and Thursday 20 May.
This year we are delighted to announce the event will be opened by Professor Dame Ottoline Leyser, the Chief Executive of UK Research and Innovation and Regius Professor of Botany at the University of Cambridge. Speakers from the research community will come together to discuss the theme “good research practice in a changing world”, including:
- How to support a culture of high quality and ethical research, now and in the future.
- How to respond to issues of poor practice and concerns about fraud.
- Updating delegates on key developments in research integrity and stimulating debate on good research practice.
This event will allow for interaction and encourages participants to share their experiences and discuss the issues that matter to them during Q&A sessions with our speakers (anonymously, if they so wish).
Who should attend? Anyone with an interest in good research practice, research integrity, research ethics, improving research culture, ensuring quality and high ethical standards in research, or in addressing sloppiness or misconduct in research.
This event will be of particular interest to Researchers, Research students and Research Administrators; people in managerial, supervisory or leadership roles within research; and people working in the fields of research integrity, research ethics, research culture, research governance or research policy.
