Ethics help desk available

The newly created Ethics Help Desk for FP7 projects now provides information on issues and offers consultation regarding the ethical aspects of research that is funded under the 7th Framework Programme. The goal of the Help-Desk is to support scientists that are research participants in FP7 funded projects, to meet the EU and international ethical standards related to the issues outlined in the "Ethics check list".

Via this service, scientists can receive advice from the Ethics Review Sector of DG research and by experts in the ethics field concerned, in order to reach their research objectives and meet the ethical requirements of their work.
The advice is offered on the basis of the FP7 ethics framework as outlined in the FP7 legal basis documents and the legal documents for implementation.

The Ethics Help Desk Contact person is Isidoros Karatzas.

All questions will be treated confidentially and personal information will be protected. More information as well as contact details you will find on the cordis "get support" page.
