8th World Conference on Research Integrity (WCRI) 2024 in Athens

The World Conferences on Research Integrity Foundation proudly announces the 8th WCRI 2024, set to convene in Athens, Greece, from 2 to 5 June 2024. The biennial WCRIs are a key event in the research integrity calendar. They bring together leading experts from diverse fields to discuss both challenges to, and developments in, research integrity. The conference will be a hybrid event with a programme that includes a mix of research findings, reflections and policy development.  

The WCRIs cater for all disciplinary fields, professional ranks, and career stages, and involve all stakeholders in research integrity, including universities, research institutes, research funders, publishers, and governments. The WCRIs take a strong view on ethnic, gender, geographical, disciplinary and career stage diversity, and ensure that this is reflected in the programme, the keynote speakers, the committee members, and the participants. Special attention to early career professionals is given through the organization of a doctoral forum, workshops, and meet-the-expert sessions for them during the conference. 

These conferences typically produce an influential policy statement, and the 8th WCRI is no different. This year’s Athens Statement will be about “Catalysing the translation of research into trustworthy policy and innovation” and encapsulates the conference’s dedication to fostering a seamless bridge between research and its real-world impact. This theme extends the research integrity focus from the research performing organisations to industry, and to policymaking. It emphasises the pivotal role research integrity should play in shaping trustworthy policies and driving innovation, and underscores the imperative not only to generate groundbreaking discoveries, but to actively facilitate their translation into policies and innovations that benefit society. WCRI 2024 will serve as a catalyst, inspiring researchers, policymakers, and innovators to collaborate closely to ensure that the fruits of research contribute meaningfully to improving communities and advancing global well-being.  

With a rich conference programme of 180 oral presentations and 353 poster presentations, six pre conference workshops, six plenary sessions, and many renowned speakers, delegates can anticipate an enriching experience that spans many topics and disciplines. The posters will be pitched during the lively poster walks.
