Research Governance and Ethical Approval Processes
Wednesday 18 December 2019, 09:00-10:20
This is an introduction to the University’s Code of Practice for the Conduct of Research which is where we lay out the expectations of how researchers should engage with the research process. The nature and purpose of ethical approval will be considered so that you appreciate why ethical scrutiny of proposed research is necessary and what those conducting such scrutiny are looking for. In addition, the requirements of the formal processes and procedures in relation to research ethics will be introduced. The session reflects national benchmarks including those of the UK Research Integrity Office, UKRI and the Concordat to Support Research Integrity.
