New Model Research: Informing the landscape in two research active modern Higher Education Institutions

Date & Time:

Meeting Room 3a

Adhering to, and demonstrating a firm commitment to research integrity is a something many Higher Education Institutions (HEI’s) across the UK are committed to upholding. This is particularly challenging for institutions seeking to transition from teaching-focused/research active towards research intensive with difficulties around funding, work loading and a more nascent research culture. However, with substantial changes relating to research integrity (revised Concordat for Research Integrity) on the horizon, it is imperative that research-focused organisations shift fully and swiftly to an integrity compliant culture

Identifying how to effectively influence current research landscape, culture, and determining a useful starting point can be challenging, and requires careful consideration. Utilising available resources within responsible teams and across organisations is essential in order to manage change effectively, efficiently, and with a high impact.

In this workshop we will reflect on the particular challenges of driving research integrity in non-research intensive institutions. The session will begin with a short presentation outlining our experience of embedding integrity within systems, stakeholders, policy and via training and development. Delegates will then contribute to an interactive debate on their experiences and institutional need sharing best practice about ‘what works’ leading to individual plans for strengthening research integrity in their organisations.
