Research Integrity: How best to support early career researchers within HEI training programmes


The meeting will focus on the Professional Conduct sub-domain(C1) of the Researcher Development Framework, specifically exploring the importance of research integrity for early career researchers and related approaches for researcher developers.

Participants will: 

  • Understand how other institutions are training researchers in research integrity and share their own experiences
  • Hear about the policy and strategic context for approaches to research integrity
  • Explore approaches for researcher developers and other stakeholders to support researchers to carry out research with integrity and
  • Consider how these approaches could be incorporated into existing HEI training programmes for early career researchers

 Speakers :

In addition to presentations from invited speakers, the day will include a series of round table discussions looking at case studies, common scenarios and best course of action to resolve the issues involved.  There will be questions around how research integrity issues could be incorporated into the HEI researcher development programmes, who to speak to about them and whose responsibility within HEIs it would be to deal with them.  Participants will also discuss what institutions already do, what are the on-going issues and how researcher developers can work together to tackle the issues.
