Research Ethics Committee

This Senate´s committee supports academics of the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg and other higher education institutions allied to the University through cooperation agreements by providing advice and assessments with regard to ethical and legal aspects of non-medical research projects concerning humans. It does this in compliance with the principles of the Declaration of Helsinki.

Those projects are surveyed by the research ethics committee of Faculty VI. The administration office decides on the allocation of applications to one of the two commissions in consultation with the two chairs of the commissions. Please find more information here.
