The Netherlands Research Integrity Network (NRIN) aims to facilitate collaboration, exchange and mutual learning between the actors in the field of research integrity. We do so by organising a diversity of open and closed meetings, and sharing information on our website, our newsletters and twitter.

And there is more!

Recently several serious violations of research integrity have come to light in the Netherlands, which placed Research Integrity (RI) high on the public and academic agenda. More systematic and explicit attention is clearly needed, especially with respect to prevention. Although many institutions are committed to improve the research culture and to offer better Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) education, there is little contact between the actors in the field. The newly launched Netherlands Research Integrity Network (NRIN) aims to facilitate collaboration, exchange and mutual learning. Other elements of NRIN’s mission include information supply; training and education for different audiences; development and exchange of teaching materials and best practices; enabling of consultation and intervision; and providing solicited and unsolicited advice to decision makers.


The NRIN organises seminars, conferences, public debates and other events in cooperation with active participants. Relevant and important topics urging NRIN attention will be identified through interviews with stakeholders and policy document analysis. Among these topics are differences in regulations and litigation; re-use of previous published materials; acceptability of anonymous complaints; and new national and international insights and innovations.

Participants of the NRIN will receive occasional newsletters with information of upcoming events, relevant developments and recent RI publications.
