The Intersection of Research Integrity and Compliance in Research Management

July 16 - July 17, 2018
Hyatt Regency Milwaukee
Milwaukee, WI

This two-day program will examine the foundations of research integrity and how they are impacted by regulatory compliance regulations. In an ever-changing research landscape, how do we sustain an institutional culture of integrity while struggling in a hyper-competitive market for diminishing research dollars? No matter your role or type of institution, we all have an important part to play in being stewards of fiscal responsibility, as well as the responsible conduct of research. We will examine case studies and engage in interactive exercises as we explore these issues together. A Research Integrity Toolkit developed last year with funding from ORI (IR160026-01-00 - “Supporting responsible research organizations: a framework for engaged research managers and administrators”), will be debuted.
