UMN Research Ethics Week is an annual week-long series of college and department-led educational opportunities focused on professional development and best practices to promote, maintain, and model high standards for ethics and integrity in research during the week of February 26 - March 1, 2024. This week features the Research Ethics Day Conference on Wednesday, February 28—a day-long free webinar on “Building Partnerships to Advance Ethical Research: Collaborators, Communities & Companies.”
"I encourage as many colleges, departments, and units as possible to develop and share opportunities they will sponsor as part of Research Ethics Week to reflect the University of Minnesota research community's commitment to ethics and integrity in research," said Vice President for Research and Innovation, Shashank Priya. "Historically, this week has had a strong emphasis on research involving human participants, but research ethics and integrity extend to all areas of research throughout the entire University system."
Online and hybrid presentations during Research Ethics Week open new doors for cross-collaborative efforts to share knowledge, best practices, and lessons learned with a larger audience. The events provide opportunities for research teams (faculty, postdoctoral scholars, students, and technical staff) to get together and discuss best practices in cutting-edge research.
