Commission for Research Impact Assessment and Ethics

This Senate commission 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.

This commission does not evaluate medically related research projects, more specifically ones within the framework of the Medicinal Products Act (Arzneimittelgesetzes (AMG)), the Medical Devices Act (Medizinproduktgesetzes (MPG)), the Transfusion Act (Transfusionsgesetzes (TFG)) and the radiation protection and X-ray ordinance. Those projects are surveyed by the ethik commission 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.

Next meeting: Wednesday, 15.04.2020

Deadline for submitting applications: Tuesday, 31.03.2020.

Applications for the assessment of research projects on humans should be sent digitally to the joint administration office of the two ethics commissions using the documents provided:
