The Research Integrity Committee is responsible for ensuring that all research at the University is conducted to the highest ethical standards.
RIC is committed to developing, promoting and maintaining a culture of research integrity that is exemplary.
“At the heart of this, cultures must embed research integrity – ensuring that we conduct our research in a way that is ethical, recognises the contribution of others appropriately and follows best practice and policy”
