Summer 2016 Advanced Responsible Conduct of Research Workshops

May 10th, 2016 in General News, Homepage

The BU Advanced Program in Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) will continue its advanced workshop series in June 2016. All doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers in the sciences, social sciences, and engineering are invited to earn their BU advanced RCR Certificate. Those who will be supported by NSF awards or by NIH training grants now or in the future must obtain a Certificate of Completion for compliance purposes. For all other doctoral and post-doctoral researchers, it is recommended that advanced RCR training be completed.
 
Recommendations for individuals who are covered by NIH or NSF grants and, thus, have to meet compliance requirements: These individuals must complete Steps 1 and 2 (online training modules) within 30 days of the start of grant support. Completion of these modules is required before signing up for the four workshops. All four advanced RCR workshops must be completed within two years.
 
Recommendations for individuals who are not covered by an NIH or NSF grant: After completion of Steps 1 and 2 (online training modules), doctoral candidates are recommended to commence the four advanced RCR workshops in their second or third year and complete the four workshops at the rate of at least one workshop per semester. The goal is for all workshops to be completed by the end of the fourth year at the latest. Postdoctoral researchers are recommended to complete Steps 1 and 2 (online) as early as possible and commence the four advanced RCR workshops in the semester in which online preparation is completed. 
 
Please view the June 2016 RCR announcement here. Directions for completing the online modules (Steps 1 and 2) are outlined in the announcement. The announcement also contains links to the RCR completion status page where participants can verify the workshops they have attended, and to the advanced RCR workshop registration page.
 
Please feel free to contact Alan Fine, Director, Responsible Conduct of Research program, with any questions or concerns at afine@bu.edu
