The 2020 theme has been chosen in line with Dubai’s Happiness Agenda: Integrity in education for future happiness
At the European Network for Academic Integrity’s Annual General Meeting (2018), the University of Wollongong in Dubai won the bid to organise the 6th International Conference Plagiarism across Europe and Beyond Conference 2020. Academic Integrity is the foundation on which all of academia stands. It is in schools, classrooms, in corridors and canteens that students, the future citizens of the world, gather an understanding of what is right and what is wrong, what is meant by integrity, being truthful, responsible, and respectful. It is here that they develop honesty and fairness and take those values into the real world and as members of the greater community, practicing these skills in their everyday lives and at their workplaces. Ensuring and upholding integrity in education provides for a sustainable, constructive future – a platform that fosters, encourages and celebrates innovation and contributes to happy individuals, happy workplaces and a happy society.
