As misconduct in research does not respect international boundaries, UKRIO participates in the discussions and initiatives to support good governance of research led by international organisations such as the OECD and the European Network of Research Integrity Offices (ENRIO), of which it is a founder member.
UKRIO has worked with the OECD and research integrity organisations in other countries to create templates for international agreements to facilitate investigations of alleged misconduct in research on cross-boundary projects and to promote good practice in research.
In liaising with ENRIO, UKRIO shares lessons learned from its experiences in supporting good research practice in the UK. Membership of ENRIO also allows us to draw upon the considerable expertise of its member organisations in sustaining research integrity and addressing poor practice. We see ENRIO as a valuable resource for all European countries involved in research and look forward to seeing it grow.
Advice and guidance services
As part of its core remit, UKRIO provides advice and guidance on issues of good practice and misconduct in research relating to any multi-national projects that involve UK research organisations or research carried out in the UK.

The third World Conference on Research Integrity
UKRIO will be contributing to the third World Conference on Research Integrity, taking place 5-8 May 2013 in Montreal. Professor Michael Farthing, Vice-Chair of UKRIO, will be delivering one of the keynote addresses and Dr Liz Wager of UKRIO’s Advisory Board will be discussing her recent research on research integrity.
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.
