It is essential that funding agencies use their influence to guarantee ethical practices in the conduct of research and in the training of current and future scientists and engineers. It is critical that the policy be upheld regardless of where award activities occur, whether at the awardee institution, online, or conducted outside the organization (e.g., at field sites or other research facilities, during conferences and workshops or meetings).
