Event description
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.

Due to generous funding provided by the South West Doctoral Training Partnership, tickets for this event are free. Attendance is open to everyone, whether they are part of a partner institution or not. As a result, space limitations become more important so please be mindful of registering only if you plan to actually attend. If circumstances change, please return your ticket through the Eventbrite page (or contact us on REC2021@exeter.ac.uk and we can do this manually). This will allow someone else to take your place. The REC committee is committed to ensuring a diverse range of organisations and individuals are represented at the conference. As such, we reserve the right to reduce the number of tickets held by representatives of any one organisation if we feel they are over-represented at the expense of other organisations or individuals. For individuals, only one ticket must be held per person. Questions about registration should be sent to REC2021@exeter.ac.uk.

For more information, see the conference website, or contact REC2021@exeter.ac.uk
