The Ethics of Idea Sharing in a Connected World

Date: Monday, February 24, 2014   Time: 12:45:00 PM
Location: 311

Science is all about sharing ideas, data, and results to advance our collective understanding. However through sharing our ideas we have the potential to encounter a myriad of ethical problems involving ownership of ideas, copyright, data use, and authorship. This workshop will provide a toolbox for you to gracefully resolve these issues by providing resources, and guiding discussion of the ethics of ideas and information in science.
