LARI Coaches

Coaches are researchers from various disciplines who are trained by LARI to support and mentor the researchers in their department/institute about good research practices, research ethics, and research integrity. If you would like to become a LARI Coach, discuss this with your department head/supervisor and the LARI Secretary General. See our calendar for coach training sessions (Coach Workshop).  Looking for your Coach?  Find him/her at this link.
