Responsible conduct of research
Research Integrity encompasses responsible conduct of research, training of researchers at all levels, research data management and management of research misconduct. UCC is committed to ensuring the highest standards of integrity in all aspects of research, founded on basic principles of good research practice to be observed by all researchers and research organisations.
UCC is part of the National Forum on Research Integrity. The Forum membership is drawn from research funders, research performing organisations and other relevant organisations. It is coordinated by the Irish Universities Association and is chaired by Professor Anita R Maguire (Vice President for Research and Innovation UCC). https://www.iua.ie/research-innovation/research-integrity/
