WCRI 2021

The World Conference on Research Integrity is a global gathering for everyone with an interest in research ethics and good research practice.

The goal of the conference is to foster the exchange of information and discussion about responsible conduct of research. It takes place every two years, but the 7th WCRI has been postponed because of the pandemic and will take place in South Africa in 2022. However, there will be a digital conference this year, open to everyone interested and free of charge. 

You can find the program and sign up for sessions here: https://wcri2022.org/digital-event-2021/
