Research Integrity: Progress Reports and Future Directions

August 25-27, 2021
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

The theme of this year’s Summer Seminar is: Research Integrity: Progress Reports and Future Directions.

Our aim is to think together about the future directions of research integrity. Together with experts 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, not importantly, how journals can contribute to integrity in publishing research.

The Summer Seminar offers a great variety of workshops alongside keynote speeches, as we want you to learn about the relevance of different research integrity tools by exploring for yourself, and with others. We conclude each day by an interactive debate on what should be addressed next.
