2019-2020 Responsible Conduct of Research Training Series

USA logo

 

The 2019-2020 educational outreach on the Responsible Conduct of Research training is provided below.

Why is RCR Important?

Education in the responsible conduct of research provides a shared understanding of the rules and ethical norms to perform research.   Researchers have both professional and regulatory-related responsibilities to conducting research responsibly, such as practicing scholarly activities and research with integrity.  RCR training aims to develop commonality in building shared values in order to promote a culture of compliance, and empowerment to continue conversations within the work environment. 

Participation

Faculty engaged in research and other sponsored and unsponsored projects are required to participate in RCR instruction. Specifically, topics marked with an asterisk * are designated as required classroom instruction, which is designed to further enhance online training.  For these designated topics, two sessions have been scheduled throughout the 2019-2020 training series to ensure faculty have an opportunity to adhere to the updated RCR training requirement.

All students and trainees engaged in research, regardless of the source of funding, must complete the appropriate institutionally-endorsed RCR training as outlined in the RCR Training Policy.

All research staff and administration are highly encouraged to participate.

Registration is required for each session within 24 hours prior of session.
