Research in Action Week will run from Monday 17 to Friday 21 June 2024, featuring a series of free expert talks for staff and students aimed at strengthening the integrity of research conducted across the university.

All sessions for the week are now available online for booking and further information.

Previously titled Research Integrity Week, the event is now in its fourth consecutive year, building upon its increasing success and popularity. Renamed ‘Research in Action 2024: Skills, Tools, and Current Debates’, the new title reflects the value and activities spanning all research career stages.

The planning of the event has brought together expertise and knowledge from across the university, organised by the University of Nottingham Research Integrity and Research Ethics Committee, with support from Research and Innovation and the Researcher Academy.

This year’s program delves into crucial topics shaping the research landscape, including the ethical dimensions of social media, fake participants in research, exploring research involving BAME and indigenous communities, and navigating the complexities of Human Tissue in research.

The sessions include insights into teams and resources from across the university that support researchers, covering areas such as Research Contracts, Post Award management, Research Information Systems, Trusted Research, and NHS ethics.

Renowned organisations such as the UK Research Integrity Office (UKRIO) and The UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN) will share their expertise, guiding participants on fostering a healthy research culture and collectively working towards improving research quality and integrity.

Researchers stand to gain valuable insights, making Research in Action Week an invaluable opportunity for both staff and students.
