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.
