If there is a perception of a conflict of interest, the integrity of the researcher or the practices of the University can be called into question, which could undermine trust in our research and ability to source funding. When writing grant applications and publications or having PDR discussions, it is important to be alert to matters that may constitute a conflict of interest. The University has mechanisms to capture conflicts of interest through its Conflict of Interest Procedure. Funding bodies also have expectations on how researchers should identify and manage conflicts of interest.
