Who ENRIO are:

The European Network of Research Integrity Offices (ENRIO) represents the voice of research integrity in Europe. ENRIO is a community of like-minded peer organisations and individuals that are passionate about championing the cause of research integrity at both a national and European level.

Over the last 12 years, ENRIO has grown from a small group of leading professionals into one of the key players that are advancing research integrity in Europe. The network has successfully built a mission, membership and activities that are comparable to some of the other key research associations in Europe. Since the network’s inception in 2008, ENRIO has rapidly enlarged its membership. Today, the network has 31 members who are spread across 23 countries. This membership development has increased the influence and impact of the network.  In 2020 ENRIO became a legal established association enabling it to create an effective long-term strategy for the future of the network, and for the advancement of research integrity in Europe.
