Welcome to the website of LARI – the Luxembourg Agency for Research Integrity.
Established in 2016 (LARI_Statuts-RCS), the Luxembourg Agency for Research Integrity (LARI) is the national agency promoting and investigating research integrity in Luxembourg. A member of the European Network of Research Integrity Offices, LARI is a non-profit organization, and a joint venture between the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR), the University of Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH), the Luxembourg Institute for Socio-Economic Research (LISER) and the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST). As such, LARI intersects with a variety of research disciplines including medicine, behavioural and social sciences, physical sciences and mathematics, engineering and materials sciences, law, and computing.
The mission of LARI is twofold:
To promote responsible conduct of research;
To ensure an independent inquiry and investigation in cases of alleged scientific misconduct.
How does LARI accomplish its mission? The LARI team uses an innovative approach that blends education and creative sessions, coaching, and consultation to foster research integrity as a value that is built into research (proactive).
LARI is the go-to organization for questions about research ethics*, research integrity, and allegations of research misconduct.
*Note, LARI is not a research ethics committee; however, we are very concerned about concepts in research ethics because such are foundational to research integrity. Learn more about this in our FAQs.
