Ethics check

Ethics Committee (Faculty of Economics and Business)

Researchers working at UvA Economics and Business are required to seek approval by the ethics committee (EBEC) if their planned research: 

  • requires the collection of new data;
  • requires access to, or storage of, secondary data that contains private, confidential, or potentially sensitive information about research participants (e.g. income, cognitive performance, health, relationships, ethnic background, biomarkers, genes);
  • concerns research topics that may have legal or ethical implications (e.g. studies on discrimination, minorities, crime, tax evasion). 

Furthermore, if you are a researcher working at UvA Economics and Business and you need EBEC approval for any purpose, you can file an application to EBEC as well.

Ethics Committee (Faculty of Law)

The primary task of the Ethics Committee is to meet the growing demand for checking research against the prevailing ethical standards. An increasing number of the institutions that fund research, including the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), the Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMW) and the European Commission demand a declaration of ethical standards. The Committee can provide such a declaration of ethical standards.
