Steneck-Mayer Lecture


The Steneck-Mayer Lecture is named after Nicholas H. Steneck and Tony Mayer who together started the World Conferences on Research Integrity. Their vision of a World Conference in Lisbon, Portugal in 2007 gave rise to the continuing series of conferences with worldwide impact. Thanks to their hard work, persistence, and unwavering commitment, the conferences have become the premier global events on research integrity. The Steneck-Mayer Lecture will be part of the World Conferences on Research Integrity from its sixth edition.
