The Reilly Center carries out original research aimed at directing science and technology to the common good.
We are concerned with the ethical, legal, social and policy implications of science and technology.
We support research that explores ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) and seeks to influence public policy on science and technology. Reilly Center research projects bring together scholars from the Colleges of Art and Letters, Science, and Engineering at Notre Dame.
Leadership in Research Intregrity
The Reilly Center promotes research integrity with regard to both research conduct in the workplace and outreach and engagement with society.
We offer events through which you can learn more about research integrity and the ethical, legal, social, and policy implications of science and technology.
We also help scholars to incorporate ethics and policy components into their research and educational projects. Please contact us if you'd like help with providing training in research integrity or developing the broader impacts component of your grant proposals.
