THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will examine the next steps for protecting research integrity in higher education.
It will be an opportunity for delegates to discuss the recommendations from the inquiry being carried out by the Science and Technology Select Committee - looking at key issues around fraud, misconduct and mistakes in research.
Delegates will discuss the steps that might be taken to overcome issues around the reproducibility of research, as well as considering the impact of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) on the research environment and what might be done to avoid creating a ‘publish or perish’ culture.
Further sessions will assess practical strategies for supporting research integrity and governance - including the potential use of open data.
