Ethics and COVID-19

The situation is rapidly changing, and the most up-to-date information can be found here.

We hope all researchers continue to follow University guidance related to face-to-face data collection.

The SoE Research Ethics Committee is able to consider new projects requesting face-to-face data collection or previously approved projects seeking to resume face-to-face data collection.  Risk assessments must be included in proposals:

These are to be signed by supervisors in the case of student and PGR projects.

Projects that are granted approval for face-to-face data collection from the SoE Rsearch Ethics Committee are expected to adhere to Government and University guidance on COVID-safe practice when interacting with others.
