During this time of crisis, when policymakers and citizens
are listening closely to the advice of scientists, trust in the integrity of
research and scientific evidence has never been more important. Policymakers and the public must have
confidence that scientists have acted with honesty, and have adhered to
principles of rigour, transparency and openness in conducting their research. But what happens when there is apparent
scientific misconduct, such as when early-career researchers observe more senior
colleagues possibly engaging in falsifying data or fabricating results? What processes are in place to address potential

Plan S requires publications funded by public grants to be published in Open Access journals or platforms from 2021. An international symposium, organised by the AE Cardiff Hub with KU Leuven Libraries, assesses the impact of Plan S on researchers, research-intensive institutions, societies and publishers.
The Cardiff Hub’s 30th anniversary reception, held on 14th January, featured a lively discussion on Plan S, an initiative for open-access science publishing. Plan S was launched in September 2018 by an international consortium of research funders, cOAlition S, supported by the ERC and launched by Science Europe.
Prof Ole Petersen, the Hub’s Academic Director, and Dr Mangala Srinivas, Chair Young Academy of Europe (YAE), introduced the topic, followed by audience discussion.
On 28th November 2017, the Cardiff Hub hosted a networking event and panel debate on international research networks. The goal of the session was to create opportunities for researchers and private companies to join international research networks and to increase international collaboration.
In November 2016, we hosted a panel debate exploring the impact of Brexit on the future of UK research. Nearly twelve months on, is there greater clarity on the major issues affecting university research? Do the opportunities and challenges remain the same, or has the landscape shifted? Our distinguished panel of experts provided a lively lunchtime debate, with audience interaction.
Following the referendum result, many questions have been raised around the future of UK research and scholarship in a post-Brexit world. On 11th November, a panel session organised by the Academia Europaea Cardiff Knowledge Hub, explored ideas about how best to pursue European and other international collaborations in a post-Brexit world.
