Handling of research integrity matters during the COVID-19 outbreak

In line with the communiques from the CEO on Thursday, 19 March 2020 and Friday, 27 March 2020, NHMRC is aware of concerns about the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the ability of some Administering Institutions to meet research integrity reporting timeframes.
While ensuring the integrity of NHMRC-funded research remains a critical priority, given the increased pressure the COVID-19 pandemic is placing on universities and other Administering Institutions, we recognise that responses to requests for information about research integrity matters may take longer during this time.
If your institution is experiencing specific issues that will delay your communication on a particular research integrity matter, please contact NHMRC via to discuss appropriate timeframes.
