Application

Corona

Due to the current coronavirus situation, the HREC will not approve any proposed studies that do not, or cannot, comply with RIVM-guidelines, specifically any set conditions on physical contact, physical proximity, and transportation. 

This is a temporary measure that will remain in place until such time when HREC feels it is acceptable again to execute such studies. In the meantime study proposals can, and should, be submitted to HREC for assessment. Please make sure that you refer to any corona measures that you will need to take in your submission – particularly, for example, in the HREC checklist and Informed Consent materials.

  • 1 July
  • 9 September
  • 1 November
