Submission of research protocols

All research plans by Heymans staff members should be registered in the Faculty Research Portal. Once a study has been registered, you can complete your request for ethics review in EC Request, the Faculty's online module for ethics review. This application can be accessed on the intranet.

The ECLO intends to respond to requests within four weeks. Researchers may be asked to change their protocol, clarify procedures, or provide additional documents. When no issues remain, the ECLO will issue an approval letter through the EC request. It is obligatory to fully inform participants about the nature, duration, and risks/burdens of participation (informed consent). Participants must be able to make an informed decision on whether to participate in the research or not to participate.
