The half day event aims to demystify Research Integrity and offers attendees simple and practical guidance on how to include Research Integrity best practices at all stages of the research process – from idea to dissemination.

This event is aimed at research students, early-career researchers, team leaders, principal investigators, managers, supervisors, research integrity officers, librarians, and all of those who wish to be informed on the topic of good research practice.

The event is supported by MTU's Research Integrity & Compliance Officer, Library, Research Offices and School of Graduate Studies.
