Course Description: 
To strengthen the integrity of research conducted across the University, the University of Nottingham Research Integrity and Research Ethics Committee with the Support of Research and Innovation and working with the Researcher Academy, have organised the Research Integrity Week for the fourth consecutive year, commencing the week of June 17, 2024. 

To reflect the value and activities across all research career stages the Committee has decided to change the name from Research Integrity Week to “Research in Action 2024: Skills, Tools, and Current Debates 

This year's program delves into crucial topics shaping the landscape of research, 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.
