MRS Policy and Standards series aims to provide updates on all that is going on in professional standards and policy.

Compiled and presented by the MRS Standards and Policy team, it’ll bring you closer to the experts behind Codeline, MRS’ email advice service for information on the Code of Conduct, GDPR, regulations and guidelines. You’ll also have the chance to submit questions to the MRS experts during the webinar, about any of the topics covered, or any other burning issues you may have.

Topics to be covered in the new episode will include:

  • The latest Covid-19 guidance for researchers on research post-lockdown 
  • Domestic and international updates
  • MRS updated guidance
  • Codeline queries and topics
