Expanding research ethics: What support services are needed?

Needs assessment for support services in the field of research ethics launched

The Working Group on Research ethics of the RatSWD is currently assessing the need for support services in the area of research ethics. To this end, it is launching two surveys aimed at ethics committees and researchers. The Research Ethics Working Group wants to find out which materials and information are important to support the work of ethics committees or their establishment.

On the basis of these systematic needs assessments, concrete recommendations and handouts for the establishment and work of local ethics committees are to be developed. The surveys will run until 29.04.2021. If you are interested in participating in the surveys, please contact the RatSWD office using the following address: office@ratswd.de.
