Appointed by the Vice President for Research, the Financial Conflicts of Interest in Research Committee (FCOIRC) is a faculty committee with responsibility for the review and oversight of potential financial conflicts as they relate to the conduct of research at the University.
The FCOIRC meets regularly to review and recommend appropriate management or mitigation of disclosed financial relationships in the conduct of research.
All Significant Financial Interest (SFI) disclosures must now be submitted electronically within the InfoEd External Interests module (https://www.infoed.uconn.edu).
Members represent a wide range of disciplines and colleges on campus. The committee seeks to maintain a balance of researchers, of individuals engaging in entrepreneurial activities and not, of representatives from larger and smaller colleges and schools, of the community, and of men and women. The current members come from the departments:
- Materials Science and Engineering
- Pharmaceutical Sciences
- Mechanical Engineering
