Public Law 110-69 America Competes Act Title VII--National Science Foundation, Sec. 7009. Responsible Conduct of Research
The Director shall require that each institution that applies for financial assistance from the Foundation for science and engineering research or education describe in its grant proposal a plan to provide appropriate training and oversight in the responsible and ethical conduct of research to undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers participating in the proposed research project.
UWF requires each undergraduate student, graduate student, and postdoctoral researcher supported by National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored research complete and provide certification for pertinent responsible conduct in research training. Certification is provided through completion of training modules of the Online Research Ethics Course developed with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Office of Research Integrity (ORI) support in conjunction with the University of Montana.
