Research Integrity: Online Training Course

Message from the Chair of the Research Governance and Ethics Committee

Dear Colleagues

I am pleased to be able to formally launch Warwick’s new Research Integrity Online Training. This addition to our suite of online training provision will provide up-to-date and subject relevant support to all those involved in the delivery and administration of research. Universities now have a regulatory duty of compliance to the Concordat to Support Research Integrity, and this, along with our own institutional commitment to research operating at the highest standards, are the key drivers behind our investment into this new provision.

The training comes in five discipline versions each with five modules which can be completed over a period of time. The training is available free of charge to anyone with a Warwick login and is suitable for all levels of staff and students undertaking research. Warwick via the Research Governance and Ethics Committee requires the undertaking of the training, including a self-assessment exercise, by all staff and students (and their supervisors) undertaking research, research and research ethics committee members and research support staff (technical and admin).

Kind regards


Professor Lawrence S. Young Pro-Vice Chancellor (Academic Planning and Resources) and Chair of the Research Governance& Ethics Committee

Below is a brief 5 minute video in which Lawrence Young discusses the importance of understanding and engaging with Research Integrity, both as an individual involved in research and as an institution.
