ORI Announces Grants to Fund Conferences Promoting Research Integrity

The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) seeks to support conferences to develop multidisciplinary networks to build upon existing evidence-based research and stimulate innovative approaches to preventing research misconduct and promoting research integrity. ORI is especially interested in supporting conferences that lead to extramural grant applications on research on research integrity and peer-reviewed publications. This program is intended to complement and promote ORI’s core education and research activities by providing a mechanism for those concerned with research integrity to meet to discuss theoretical, empirical, research design, educational, legal, procedural, ethical, and other issues related to preventing research misconduct and addressing issues that arise after an allegation of research misconduct is brought forward at an institution. These meetings should be designed to bring together experts from diverse areas of research, education, administration, law, and government to develop new tools for education and design programs to help prevent research misconduct and promote research integrity. The range of awards will be up to $50,000 per budget period, with five awards granted. The application deadline is May 15, 2015. For more information, see the funding announcement.
