The Joint Research and Compliance Office runs a series of monthly workshops for staff and students of Imperial College London and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust

Imperial College strives to maintain the highest standard of research integrity from ethics applications (HRA, REC, ICREC and SETREC) to reporting of trial results. Imperial College considers trial transparency to be an important part of research integrity. The registration and reporting of trial results on ClinicalTrials.gov website is critical as it becomes part of public domain. Medical professionals, policy-makers and patients rely on published evidence to make health decisions. We have training courses available for Clinicaltrial.gov and EudaraCT websites.

The JRCO offers 4 courses to Imperial College staff and students.
