*Apologies for any cross-posting* 


Dear Colleague,     


Research Ethics 'Toolkit' for Research Supervisors and Research Managers

13th May 2010 

National Railway Museum Conference Centre, York



This workshop will review the key strategies and materials required for a "Toolkit" for Research Ethics training of academic staff and research managers in HEIs. Overviews of policies from the Research Councils, NHS (including the Research Passport Scheme) will cover latest developments in Research Ethics and Research Governance in Higher Education Institutions. Topics to be covered will include IPR issues and best practice for ethical publishing, ethical issues in clinical research, and the implementation of effective "whistle-blowing" policies designed to protect the "whistle-blower". The need to accurately reflect current legislation in the process of making robust decisions on Research Ethics will also be reviewed in the context of developing a web-based decision-tree approach. The need to reflect differing ethical perspectives and best practice when developing Research Ethics training programmes will form an essential focus in this workshop.


This programme has been designed for academic staff, research supervisors and administrative staff involved with or managing, supporting or supervising research students including: Graduate Deans, Research Supervisors, Research Managers, Administrative and Staff Development personnel. There will be ample opportunity to network with fellow professionals during the Workshop which takes place at one of York's flagship venues.


The cost of the workshop is £175 for UKCGE Members and £225 for non-members. This price includes lunch, refreshments and a delegate pack.
