The RAISE (Responsibility and Integrity in Science and Engineering) program takes an in depth look at topics in responsible conduct of research (RCR), including fabrication and falsification of data, authorship, plagiarism, conflicts of interest, intellectual property, treatment of experimental subjects, and whistleblowing. On successful completion of the course, RAISE fellows are eligible to submit one or more grant proposals to the UD Center for Science Ethics and Public Policy (SEPP) to fund outreach, teaching, or research activities related to research ethics. Typical activities include leading discussions on a research ethics topic with other students, arranging a speaker or other RCR event, participation in travel or helping lead group discussions at the annual UD Research Office RCR training (in collaboration with RAISE faculty).
NB: Important resources for this class are available to registered students via Sakai@UD.
