Grants Ethics Training Series

So often ethics about grants are focused on the mismanagement of grant funding which gets flashy headlines in the news. But ethics are important throughout the full grant lifecycle from research to reporting. Each training will present information tied to grant and development codes of conduct, standard grant best practices, and case studies and will facilitate a question and answer session for each core topic.
