UKRIO contributes to the national and international promotion of integrity in research. This involves discussion of our work at conferences and other events, giving lectures and case study workshops, as well as articles in academic journals and in the press. Recent audiences includea variety of research organisations, the Association of Research Managers and Administrators, the Association of Research Ethics Committees and the NHS Health Research Authority.
Sessions are designed to share good practice in the conduct of research and pass on the lessons that UKRIO has learnt through its advice and guidance services. The focus is on raising awareness of research integrity, providing practical and useful support on how to avoid or address common issues, and using illustrative case studies to demonstrate how situations can arise and be resolved.
If your organisation would be interested in learning more about good practice in research, research misconduct or the work of UKRIO, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Inaugural annual conference for UKRIO subscribers
UKRIO held the first Annual Conference for its subscribers on Wednesday 6 March 2013, at the offices of CMS Cameron McKenna in the City of London.
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. The underlying theme of the event was sharing lessons learned from UKRIO’s unique and extensive experience. The conference also provided a forum for our subscribers to discuss the issues which matter to them and share their own experiences.
The conference was an invitation-only event, for those research organisations which have chosen to subscribe to UKRIO. If your institution would like to learn more about the benefits of supporting UKRIO, please contact us.
UKRIO is a charitable organisation funded entirely through subscriptions. We are grateful to CMS Cameron McKenna for hosting the conference and for the support of the Association of Research Managers and Administrators for its generous support.
