Session Aim: to introduce the audience to the topic of Research Integrity (RI) and explore what it means in practice for laboratory animal science. The session will raise awareness of European and UK efforts to promote and support responsible research and innovation. Funding bodies expectations in terms of RI and the responsible use of animals in research will also be discussed, as well as efforts to improve the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research. Speakers will share their thoughts on what this all means for licence holders working under ASPA, as well as for research establishments, researchers and research support staff including animal care and research technician whose role it is to support research in practice. The audience will be encouraged to engage with the issues, and given some practical ideas to take back to their own establishments.
