The Ethics Check is a service offered during the application phase for EU-funded research projects. We check and review the compulsory ethics self-assessment component of your proposal prior to submission to ensure that your proposal effectively addresses all relevant ethical, legal and societal issues that may arise within the research project in accordance with regulatory frameworks and ethical standards.
