The Reilly Center carries out original research aimed at directing science and technology to the common good.

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.

The research is disseminated through conferences and publications, including the Reilly Center Series of the University of Notre Dame Press and the Reilly Center Reports.

Leadership in Research Integrity

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, science policy, and responsible communication or with developing the broader impacts component of your grant proposals. 

Research Initiatives and Collaborations

The Reilly Center promotes research and education into the ethical, legal, social, and policy implications of science and technology through its research project on Emerging Technologies of National Security and Intelligence (ETNSI) and by partnering with various technical partners across campus and professional societies that draw members from around the world.
