Roberta D’Alessandro attended the 5th WCRI (World Conference on Research Integrity), which was held in Amsterdam on May 28-31.
The WCRI was organized around the interlinked themes of transparency and accountability, building on the premise that the honesty and reliability of research are best served by openly sharing all aspects of research and by taking personal responsibility for it. The conference program explored the challenges of promoting transparency and accountability and the consequences of the failure to do so, with the overall goal of developing an evidence-based agenda for addressing the various lapses of integrity that seem to have become an endemic problem in research today (The Amsterdam agenda) (from the conference description.

Roberta was also part of the program committee on behalf of the GYA and ICSU/CFRS.
The next WCRI will be held in Hong Kong in 2019.
