Dr. Brent Bradford represents CUE at the 6th World Conference on Research Integrity

Posted on: Jul 11, 2019

Dr. Brent Bradford, Associate Professor, Faculty of Education, represented Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) at the prestigious 6th World Conference on Research Integrity in Hong Kong (University of Hong Kong) from June 2 to 5, 2019, thanks to a grant awarded by the Government of Canada’s Secretariat on Responsible Conduct of Research (funded jointly by the federal Tri-Agency [CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC]).

With research having a constantly changing landscape, including international collaboration, ‘open’ research, and a new generation of investigators, the conference theme focused on New Challenges for Research Integrity. Topics of discussion throughout the conference included the impact of replication, transparency, cultural differences, research misconduct, and assessment of researchers.

As part of the awarded grant, Dr. Bradford will continue collaborating with the Secretariat on Responsible Conduct of Research and other Canadian and international scholars (conference attendees). He will also aim to conduct a series of presentations at CUE, and other institutions, throughout 2019-2020 related to new studies focusing on Research Integrity and the Responsible Conduct of Research. These efforts are expected to lead to further discussions involving faculty, staff, students, and community members as CUE continues to enrich its research endeavour.
