UK Research Integrity Office (UKRIO) 

The UK Research Integrity Office (UKRIO) is an independent charity, offering support to the public, researchers and organisations to further good practice in academic, scientific and medical research. UCD is an associate member of UKRIO. Recordings of the UKRIO Webinars and Annual Conference presentations can be found on the UKRIO YouTube Channel. 

Standard Operating Procedures for Research Integrity (SPOs4RI)

SOPs4RI will deliver an online, freely accessible and easy-to-use ‘toolbox’ that can help RPOs and RFOs cultivate research integrity and reduce detrimental practice. SOPs4RI will establish an inventory of relevant Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Guidelines that RPOs and RFOs can draw on when developing governance arrangements promoting strong research integrity cultures.

The Embassy of Good Science

The goal of The Embassy of Good Science is to promote research integrity among all those involved in research, by providing thematic resources to stimulate discussion, Case Studies and teaching resources, as well as a comprehensive Training Guide. The Embassy aims to become a unique ‘go to’ place, a public square where the community of researchers can gather to discuss ‘hot topics’, share knowledge, and find guidance and support to perform science responsibly and with integrity. 


This EU-funded project has developed a campaign around raising awareness and promoting a research integrity culture with diverse materials specifically tailored to secondary school students, graduates and undergraduates, researchers and doctoral students, as well as organisations.


This EU-funded project has developed a number of free online courses aimed at early stage researchers, on data, Responsible Conduct of Research, and authorship. In addition, the resources are being trialled with school students.
