Extension of COVID Flexibilities for Method of Instruction in the Responsible Conduct of Research


NIH (together with AHRQ and HRSA) will extend the existing COVID flexibilities permitting online training in the responsible conduct of research through December 31, 2021, even if the declared public health emergency is rescinded before then. Grant recipients do not need to seek prior approval to do so.

These flexibilities apply to all awards requiring instruction in the responsible conduct of research, including research training grants (e.g., T32, T34, T35), fellowships (e.g., F30, F31, F32), individual and institutional career development awards (e.g., K01, K08, K12/KL2, K23), and research education awards (e.g., R25).
