The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) has on its website a series of case studies addressing a variety of topics in the responsible conduct of research. The ORI Casebook: Stories about Researchers Worth Discussing (Casebook) is designed to raise awareness of the types of ethical dilemmas researchers may encounter and provide a way to work through them.
The Casebook consists of the following eight topic chapters:
The Fulbright Arctic Initiative will bring together a network of scholars, professionals and applied researchers from the United States, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia and Sweden for a series of three seminar meetings and a Fulbright exchange experience. Sixteen outstanding scholars from the U.S. and abroad will be selected to participate in the program as Fulbright Arctic Initiative Scholars through an open, merit-based competition.
The Initiative will provide a platform for scholars from across the Arctic region to engage in collaborative thinking, analysis, problem-solving and multi-disciplinary research in one of four areas: Energy, Water, Health, and Infrastructure. Program activities will commence in spring 2015 and conclude in fall of 2016.
Two recent awards to UNH from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program have allowed UNH to purchase a focused ion beam scanning electron microscope and an isotope ratio mass spectrometer. The new instruments will help a wide range of faculty and students conduct innovative research; further graduate, undergraduate, and K-12 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) training; and facilitate partnerships with industry users.
This summer, UNHInnovation (UNHI) had the opportunity to host a roundtable discussion at the regional NORDP (National Organization of Research Development Professionals) meeting held at UNH. Our discussion was loosely themed “Commercialization, Technology Transfer, and Innovation,” all favorite topics of our office.
Asbestos Awareness Training is required for those employees who’s daily work activities requires the possible contact with ACM’s, or related responsibilities. This training is required initially within 60 days upon hire for those affected employees and annually thereafter. The training includes a discussion on asbestos and asbestos related products and their locations at UNH, health hazards associated with exposures, regulatory requirements, and UNH practices and procedures associated with the presence of ACM’s.
Professor James Wible will present his paper Economic Dimensions of Research Misconduct and Responsible Conduct of Research in Science and Economics at the Economics Research Seminar on Friday, November 7, 2014, 2:10-3:30 pm in Paul College Room 165. UNH faculty, staff and students are invited to attend.
Certificates of Confidentiality (CoCs) are a tool available to researchers to help protect the privacy of research participants in studies where researchers collect sensitive information about them. CoCs protect researchers and institutions from forced disclosure of information that may identify research participants during the time that the Certificate is in effect.
The UNH Research Digest collects research news stories from across the University and provides brief summaries that showcase the breadth and depth of our research, scholarly activity, and artistic endeavors.
The Fairchild Dairy Teaching and Research Center, a facility of the NH Agricultural Experiment Station (NHAES) at the UNH College of Life Sciences and Agriculture (COLSA), will mark its 25th anniversary Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2014, with a celebration that will include presentations of the University’s current dairy research.
