Research, Ethics, and Society


Between 2010-2013, this NSF-funded project — Developing and Assessing Macroethics Modules for the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Courses — built instructional materials on social responsibilities of researchers for this online resource. These responsibilities grow from public expectations that researchers will act in the public interest; they can range from spending public research funds wisely to anticipating issues that may arise from outcomes of research and innovation.
