To maintain the high standards of research practice at Cambridge, the University will uphold the commitments outlined in Universities UK’s Concordat to Support Research Integrity.
The Concordat sets out a series of responsibilities for researchers and employers of researchers, compliance with which is now a condition of HEFCE and RCUK funding
