Conflict of Interest in Research Policy
- SCOPE OF POLICY
This policy addresses the responsibility of the University of Delaware (UD or University) to promote objectivity in research by 1) requiring that faculty, staff and other members of the University-research community disclose their significant financial interests, and 2) providing means for managing conflicts of interest (COI) should they arise.
- POLICY STATEMENT
The involvement of faculty, staff and other members of the University-research community with appropriate commercial enterprises aligns with University mission as it is an important part of the transfer of knowledge and is encouraged by the University to enhance teaching, research, and outreach programs. Association of faculty or staff with commercial enterprises should be such that it benefits all the parties involved, including the University. All faculty, staff, and members of the University-research community are expected to conduct their research-related duties with integrity and to avoid association with activities that could diminish or could be perceived as diminishing the effectiveness of their commitment to the University. It is the responsibility and obligation of faculty, staff, and members of the University-research community to disclose all SFIs that may affect, or appear as if they could affect, their University-related responsibilities.
The complete policy and more can be found on the General Counsel’s web site.
