Research Ethics Conference 2021

About this Event

Update: Abstract submission is now open - see the conference submission webpage for the call for papers and more details

Ethics has never been as important as it is now. The world we live in is changing at a dramatic pace and we must maintain rigorous and critical ethical practices of the research journey, across all disciplines throughout STEM and HASS. But what exactly is ethics and what does it mean to conduct ethical research?

While academic and other organisations have ethics committees and processes in place, there is often little space or time in institutions to discuss what ethics means in practice, how our understanding of ethics varies across disciplines, and how practices change and develop over time. Research ethics can sometimes run the danger of being misinterpreted, underplayed or merely viewed as a ‘tick box’ exercise. Academics can also find themselves 'playing catch-up' due to the rapid progress of research and new methodologies and discoveries that we have to regulate for the first time.

This conference brings together academics from across disciplines, as well as partners from industry and local organisations. It will provide a space for discussing research ethics across disciplines, and for developing new and existing ethical practices to ensure they are embedded effectively throughout the research process.

A key aspect of the conference is that it will provide all that attend an informal, comfortable and accessible space for interaction. This event offers an opportunity to meet others within and outside your disciplines and organisations to discuss and network around research ethics. One of the intended outcomes of these interactions is fostering professional research ethics networks, collaborations and friendships.

The conference is free and open to all to attend and present. Please note that because of this attendance is limited and attendees should be dilligent about registration - only register if you actually plan to attend, and please cancel your registration or contact the organisers beforehand if you are no longer able to attend. Funding for the conference has been generously provided by the South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP) and so actively involves all members of the partnership: the universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth and UWE. Students and staff from partnership universities are encouraged to attend and/or present, including any non-SWDTP-funded academic students and staff, as well as members of other regional organisations.
