Call for Applicants: ASEAN Responsible Conduct of Research Workshop

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Young Scientists Network is calling for applications to the ASEAN Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Project. This workshop aims to foster integrity across Southeast Asia towards achieving the long-term goal of establishing a robust RCR agenda.

All successful applicants will be invited to attend the ASEAN RCR Workshop, which will be held at AKEPT, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia from the 11 - 13 December 2019. This workshop will be the first stage of the 3-year ASEAN RCR Project.

Early- to mid-career researchers in all disciplines of sciences including engineering, social sciences, arts and the humanities in the ASEAN region, who are passionate about promoting research integrity are encouraged to apply. The network also welcomes research administrators who actively promote research integrity to apply and participate in this project.

ASEAN RCR Workshop Structure

The ASEAN RCR Workshop is developed as a highly interactive workshop that includes training, application, peer support and mentorship on RCR. Participants will learn about the framework and content of RCR; and they will be provided with pedagogical and leadership training as well as network to formulate regional collaborative strategies. Participants who attend this workshop will take part in the 3-year ASEAN RCR Project that includes the promotion of RCR in their home country.

ASEAN RCR Workshop Structure Costs

Training, meal and accommodation costs will be covered by the organizers for all participants. Travel support will also be made available to a maximum of two participants from each ASEAN member state. There will be some costs that will not be covered by the program, such as visas and vaccinations, for which the participants may need to seek support from their local institution or fund personally. Participants will also be required to provide their personal travel insurance details as a condition of participation.
