Thu 6

Researchers are often faced with dilemmas and questions which put their integrity at risk. In these situations, how do you decide what is important for you and how to stay close to your values while protecting your integrity and respecting the relevant professional codes of conduct? Our self-taught online research integrity module introduces the basic research integrity concepts.

This workshop facilitates further discussion of the case studies introduced in the moodle course and explores the questions and challenges researchers face in their research practice. We will share hints, tips, and resources and encourage participants to reflect on and share best practice and their experiences.

Thu 20

Export control training (12-1pm)

Overview

The UK has an obligation to ensure that goods, technology or software that can be used for a military purpose or contribute towards the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction are not exported into the wrong hands. This may affect research data, research equipment or publications, even in areas that have no intended military application. This training course provides an overview of export control legislations and how it may impact academic research, equipment, collaborations and outputs.

Integrity training (1pm-2pm)

Overview

As part of our mission to produce internationally excellent research, the University needs to ensure that that the research findings it produces are trustworthy, that they have integrity. This session provides an overview of the expectations on researchers as regards the integrity of their research, the challenges that can be faced in living up to these expectations and what can be done to facilitate a culture of research integrity. We will discuss issues ranging from research misconduct through to steps that can be taken to encourage best practice. The session will be a mixture of talk and workshop - exploring real life scenarios and encouraging discussions of what else the University can do to support integrity in research.

It is not necessary to stay for both parts of the training. Come and stay for export control or integrity training or both.
