Vol. 6 No. 32 April - June 2016
This is how PI's may feel about those of us who oversee their grant funds!
Responsible Conduct in Research Requirements
NSF requires that all students working on NSF grants must have RCR training. That training must cover each of the 9 RCR elements that are applicable to the work they are doing on the grant. The students must sign a form confirming that they have been trained in the appropriate elements. The list of RCR elements can be found at: http://www.brynmawr.edu/grants/RCRPolicy.html. The forms for student signature can be found at: Student Certification of RCR Training. The auditors and NSF are getting very strict about our need to follow the RCR requirements and non-compliance could impact whether a grant remains viable.
