Research Ethics Training Opportunities

Training on research ethics and the new online ethics system.

Research Ethics Online System Training

Training Programme

The university's review of ethical practices pertaining to our research resulted in the development of a new digital system designed to enhance the user experience. Our programme of engagement and training has been developed by the Research Governance and Compliance Team to ensure users can be inducted and the system can be successfully implemented.

These sessions also create opportunities for ethical reflection on good research practice which will form a programme of ongoing activities which we anticipate will become an integral part of research practice. We trust that it will help embed, across the whole Institution, a culture and mindset that recognises the value and importance of carrying out high quality ethical research with integrity.
