Brown’s Annual Conflict of Interest (COI) cycle for faculty, instructors, post-docs, and researchers will commence on Wednesday, February 10, 2021, and runs through Wednesday, March 10, 2021.

Brown’s Conflict of Interest (COI) in Research Policy includes details regarding who is required to complete and submit an Annual COI Reporting form.

As in years past, individuals who are required to submit the Annual COI Reporting form will, at the start of the annual cycle, receive an email from Vice President for Research Jill Pipher with information about the disclosure process and a link to the electronic research administration system. Periodic reminders and notices will be sent to those with un-submitted forms. The annual cycle closes on March 10, 2021.

Brown’s annual COI reporting is for Calendar Year (CY) 2020, and is submitted through Brown’s electronic research administration system, InfoEd. Any data entered by end users during the last annual cycle and throughout the past year has been copied into their 2020 Annual COI Reporting form for them to update as appropriate.

Job aids are available to help navigate the submission process. COI FAQs are also posted to assist with any reporting questions or you may direct questions to [email protected] in the Office of Research Integrity.
