Research Integrity


UCL Research Funding Ethics Policy

Ethics Wordcloud

UCL is committed to ensuring the highest standards of research integrity across all of its activities, which includes the careful consideration of funding opportunities available to staff and students.

UCL's position on certain funding opportunities is clear, such as not accepting any monies from the tobacco industry.  However, there are other types of funding situations that for a number of reasons may not be acceptable in certain circumstances or for particular pieces of research.

UCL's Research Funding and Ethics Policy was approved in 2014. The Research Funding Ethics Committee decides appropriateness of funding in cases referred to it, through assessing compliance and consistency with the Research Funding Ethics Policy.
