The Concordat to support research integrity provides a comprehensive national framework for good research conduct and its governance. The Concordat has been developed by Universities UK in collaboration with the funding and research councils, the Welcome Trust and various government departments.
The University of Huddersfield subscribes to the principles of the Concordat and is committed to excellence in all aspects of research.
The University’s Research Ethics & Integrity Committee is responsible for ensuring that the governance and policy context for the undertaking of research within the University is optimal (up-to-date with current legislation, ethically appropriate and fit-for-purpose).
The senior member of staff who oversees research integrity at the University and acts as the first point of contact for anyone wanting more information on matters of research integrity is Professor Andrew Ball (Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Research and Enterprise).
