Good Research Practice Awards 2023

The University of Edinburgh Good Research Practice Awards recognise and celebrate contributions that provide leadership and act as role models for good research practice.

The awards have been organised by a University-wide group, with reference to the UK Concordat to Support Research Integrity.

In these awards we continue our approach of seeking to recognise those who are making a major but perhaps unheralded contribution to the research environment and culture, for instance through positive and supportive engagement, or undertaking activities that enable the University to work to the highest standards of research integrity.
