Committee Ethics and Data

The Committee’s main task is to review research proposals on criteria concerning ethically responsible scientific conduct. The conditions and principles applied by the Committee are set out in the Regulations that have been drawn up for this purpose.  

Ethical review can be relevant in cases concerning the privacy of research subjects, aspects of human dignity during interviewing, the acquisition of mutual consent and a possible conflict of interests in the case of third money flow i.e. contract research. In certain cases, an ethical review is required by external organizations such as the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). But even without this obligation, staff may submit a request for advice via an application form.

Requests for advice

Would you like to submit a request for advice? Please submit the following items to the Committee:

Applications can be submitted by mail before the deadlines. The committee gives, two weeks after the meeting, an advice in which it indicates whether or not - and possibly after some adjustment - to agree with the proposal or not. This advice is not binding.

N.B.: Applications submitted without an approved Data Management Plan and – in case of heightened risk to privacy – an approved Data Protection Impact Assessment will not be considered.
