Abstract: The Scientific Integrity Working Group (SIWG) of the ILSI Southeast Asia Region is committed to expanding ILSI's trust in Scientific Integrity (SI) amongst its entities. The SIWG had organised a successful webinar on SI in June 2021. This was followed by a survey and consultations with stakeholders on the intricacies and challenges of tripartite collaborations. The plan is to avail a white paper on best practices and the way forwards for SI in SEA. SIWG presented a paper on SI at the World Congress on Research Integrity (WCRI) in Cape Town in June 2022. This presentation will share some of the findings of the SIWG and also a successful model for SI in multisectoral tripartite research collaborations.
