Conflict of interest

Oxford's Conflict of Interest policy requires all staff and students 'to recognise and disclose activities that might give rise to conflicts of interest or the perception of conflicts and to ensure that such conflicts are seen to be properly managed or avoided'. 

Conflicts of interest may be financial or non-financial or both.
