The LOWI advises the Boards of its affiliated institutions, such as universities and research institutes, regarding alleged violations of principles of research integrity.
It was established in 2003 by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), and the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU).
On the occasion of its tenth anniversary the LOWI organised a seminar on 26 November 2014, by invitation only. Some presentations are available online.
