Office for Ethics in Industry Engagement

The University of Cincinnati’s Office for Ethics in Industry Engagement in the Office of Research was established as part of UC’s commitment to adhering to the highest standards of ethics, integrity, and responsible research. Conflicts of interest have the potential to threaten the integrity of the researcher, the University, academic research, training, or other activities.

Online Training

Conflicts of Interest in Research

Target Audience: All faculty and staff who conduct research at UC

Research Office: Office for Ethics in Industry Engagement

Faculty and staff who participate in funded research at the University of Cincinnati must complete training on promoting objectivity in research. This training is required every four years, at a minimum, due to federal regulations governing conflicts of interest in research. The course for meeting this requirement is available in the UC online training application CPD (Continuous Professional Development). If you are a UC employee and have not completed the Conflict of Interest Training, you will not be able to complete your Outside Activity Report.
