The “2023 IRB Research Integrity Initiative Award”, organised by the Committee of Research Integrity (CRI), is an opportunity for young researchers to submit innovative and original research integrity (RI) training session proposals that are feasible within the Institute and that comply with its RI code of conduct. The proposals should be devised to engage the research community in RI matters.


The winning training session will be carried out in all laboratories.
