This interactive workshop provides an in-depth overview of the University's Individual Conflict of Interest in Research (COI) policy, why it matters, and how it applies to UA researchers. Participants will learn the criteria for determining whether or not someone qualifies as an Investigator under the University's COI policy, what counts as a significant financial interest and a significant personal interest, and the processes for disclosing and managing those interests.
