This is a reminder that as of January 1, 2010 the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs will only process SharePoint routing forms

If you have a department which would like to schedule a training session, please contact us and we will be happy to arrange one for you. If you have any questions please contact Carol Mitton, extension 5546 or cmitton@uno.edu.


The National Science Foundation requires the University to have a training plan in place by January 4, 2010 for Responsible Conduct of Research. ALL future NSF proposals MUST have a section devoted to RCR.  Please contact the Office of Research if you have questions about this section of your proposal. UNO’s plan has been posted to the UNO website so that principal investigators will be able to reference the plan in their proposals. The RCR Plan is posted on the ORSP website:  http://orsp.uno.edu/policies.regulations/rcr.cfm; The RCR plan is also posted on the ORSP SharePoint site: https://sharepoint.uno.edu/research/rcr/default.aspx.

Responsible conduct of research focuses on defining and implementing policies and procedures which strengthen the integrity of the research enterprise and protect the University from assuming unreasonable risks associated with research, which is a cornerstone of the university mission. These policies and procedures seek to eliminate or significantly reduce risk of injuries to persons or damage to property; risk associated with contracts; risk of conflict of interest; risk of breach of confidentiality; and risk associated with copyrights, patent infringement and technology transfer. Adhering to a responsible conduct of research policy also includes protection of the researcher.

A training schedule will be forthcoming soon.
