Excellence & integrity

Integrity and ethics are at the heart of higher education research. Failure to uphold integrity can damage the reputation of institutions, hinder progress and waste valuable resources. Therefore, HEI’s must work with the newly established UKRI to maintain accuracy, honesty and transparency.

Join Holyrood as we scrutinise the role of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and share learning around ensuring improved research integrity and governance in your institution through good practice and insights.

Key issues we’ll examine with you

  • Priorities for REF2021 and the Research Integrity Concordat
  • Monitoring, compliance & benchmarking
  • Detecting research misconduct & embedding fair processes to deal with it
  • Improving research integrity in practice 
  • Successful training and development programmes for researchers
