Beyond Compliance: ethics and integrity research showcase 2015

'Beyond Compliance: Ethics and Integrity Research Showcase' is an annual event open to the public, celebrating recent advances and innovations in research ethics and integrity at the University of Melbourne.

The principles of research ethics and integrity are more than prescriptive requirements; they are active, living principles extending beyond compliance. This event showcases research supported by the Sir William Brunton Memorial Fund via the University of Melbourne's Office for Research Ethics and Integrity (OREI) Development Grants scheme.
