Summer Seminar on Research Integrity: Progress Reports and Future Directions.

Our aim is to think together about the future directions of research integrity. Together with experts we will review initiatives that have been designed to foster responsible conduct of research, policies and guidelines that can strengthen institutions in holding research integrity in high regard and also how journals can contribute to integrity in publishing research.

The Summer Seminar offers a great variety of interactive lectures, with attention for learning about the relevance of different research integrity tools, alongside keynote speeches. We conclude each day by an interactive debate on what should be addressed next.

The seminar will be offered in a hybrid format due to the regulations considering the covid-19 pandemic. It will be possible to attend the seminar through live streaming. Also we aim to host up to 75 people on location at Pakhuis de Zwijger. Tickets to attend on location will be changed into online attendance tickets in the case that the covid-regulations do not allow for hosting people on location, see the cancellation policy below.
