Community

The OEC site is designed to engage and serve those who promote learning and advance the understanding of responsible research and practice in engineering and science. It recognizes the individuals and organizations that have provided guidance, reviewed submissions, contributed resources for the OEC (or related activities of the Center for Engineering Ethics and Society), and/or contributed to the goals of the site. Posted profiles can inform those interested in careers in ethics education in engineering and science and may suggest opportunities for collaboration and partnership. The OEC Community Feed announces events, developments, and new members and resources posted to the site. The Projects page provides information about current activities of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that address ethics issues in science and engineering.

This final rule is intended to better protect human subjects involved in research, while facilitating valuable research and reducing burden, delay, and ambiguity for investigators. These revisions are an effort to modernize, simplify, and enhance the current system of oversight.
