Functions of the Ethics Committee

Review and assessment function

  • review and provide feedback on research ethics applications from researchers who will start research that involves data collection, data analyses and storage or use of (external?) data. This relates only to data involving participants, (e.g., surveys, video data etc.);
  • approve to the EC submitted research proposals.
  • review and assess any proposed amendments to approved projects that may change the ethical status of the project.

Advisory and educative function

The EC will:

  • provide advice related to issues arising from the ethical conduct of research;
  • serve an educative function within Radboud Teachers Academy, providing information and guidance related to policies and principles related to the conduct of ethical academic research.
