Inaugural Seminar of the National Forum on Research Integrity

Responsible research and innovation:

Fostering a climate of excellence for Irish research

Royal Irish Academy, 3 Feb 2017, 11:00-16:00

The seminar aims to explore the topic of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) from a national and international viewpoint, focusing on how to establish and maintain a culture of responsible conduct of research. Topics will include the opportunities and challenges of developing and tracking the success of initiatives aimed at strengthening organisational culture change, and presented by Open Science, the dilemmas faced by researchers in conducting research in a highly competitive environment, and exploring the issues arising from collaborative research when the research culture differs between disciplines, sectors and countries.
