Symposium Programme

8th EMWA Symposium
6 November 2020

Research Integrity & The Medical Communicator: What We Do When No One Is Watching

Please note the symposium is open to both EMWA members and non-members: see the Fees and Registration page for details on pricing.

 

The 8th EMWA symposium day will explore the challenging topic of research integrity. Research integrity is at the core of the research endeavour. It is the basis for researchers’ trust in each other and in the research record and, equally importantly, society’s trust in research. 

To address mounting concern about research transparency and reproducibility, researchers, funders and journals need to work together to deliver practical solutions. Addressing research integrity is a shared task and we, as medical communicators and publication planners, have an important role to play.

At the first virtual EMWA symposium, researchers, journal publishers, the pharmaceutical industry and medical communications agencies will provide their perspectives, give their recommendations and foster real-world discussion on research integrity – why it matters to all of us, and how we can work together to strengthen it.

Times are in CET. 

Please note this programme is subject to change.
