In 2012, The Concordat to Support Research Integrity was published by a stakeholder group including Universities UK, the research councils and other funders, the higher education funding councils and various Government departments. It sets out five commitments to demonstrate and provide assurance that research in the UK continues to be underpinned by the highest standards of rigour and integrity – commitments that universities are now required to meet as part of their funding agreements. This session will examine the Concordat four years on, including its impact on the sector, the conclusions of the 2015 Universities UK review into its effectiveness, and how research funders are ensuring that universities are in compliance with the Concordat. The speakers will explore how institutions have used the Concordat to support the production of high quality research and safeguard good research practice, the challenges involved in ensuring that your institution is contractually compliant, and why research integrity is now something that every research administrator needs to be aware of. The session will include plenty of time for discussion.
