Seminar on Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) for New Staff

An RCR Seminar has been scheduled as follows:

Date/Time: April 14, 2012, Saturday, from 8:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Venue: Wang Gungwu Theatre, Graduate House

The seminar aims to

  • explore research integrity issues on conflict of interest and questionable research practices that colleagues may encounter in their work;
  • present principles, policies and procedures of research ethics compliance for clinical and non-clinical projects;
  • introduce a web-based RCR training programme; and
  • provide opportunities to share RCR concerns with senior staff.

By the end of the seminar, participants will have enhanced awareness of the established ethical principles of research integrity, and most importantly, how to apply them to their work, as well as how to avoid engagement in any research misconduct.  For further details, please refer to the tentative programme.

Registration through HKUEMS is required at
