Research Ethics Considerations When Working with International Partners

Webinar | Wednesday April 24, 2024, 2 p.m.- 3 p.m. MT

Join us for a discussion about key ethical considerations for partnered research in international settings. This session will introduce suggestions for translating or contextualizing UCalgary’s research ethics processes when working with international partners. How may approaches for recruitment, obtaining informed consent, relationship development or distributing incentives need to be reassessed within international contexts?

For an introduction to Research Ethics and advice on submitting an ethics application with partners, view this recording from our  2023 series Navigating Partnered Research: Research Ethics for Community Engaged Projects with Dr. Jenny Godley and Dr. Stacey Page.
