Ethics Training Workshops
Consideration of research ethics facilitates high quality research, encouraging researchers to pay greater attention to detail and be rigorous. As research activities increase in complexity, often conducted in an interdisciplinary manner, or with international collaborators, the ethical issues become more complex, consideration of the ethical issues becomes even more important.
Our ethics courses are designed for anyone needing to submit an application to a Faculty Research Ethics Committee, or for those who would like to know more about the fundamental principles governing research ethics, the objectives, scope and applicability of the ethical review procedures and the practicalities of research ethics review at the University: when and how to obtain ethics approval for a project.
‘The principal aim of the ethics review is, as far as possible, to protect all groups involved in research: participants, institutions, funders and researchers throughout the lifetime of the research and into the dissemination process’. ESRC’s Research Ethics Framework
