Ethics Committee for Research at the UO

The Ethics Committee for Research at the UO is established for the purpose of assessing the ethical aspects of research conducted at the UO, which mainly affects human and animal subjects. It assesses whether the research methodology in the proposed project is in conflict with ethical standards and general legislation (protection of personal data, treatment of biological material, especially human subjects, including treatment of biological material of human origin).

The Ethics Committee for Research at the UO assesses proposals for research projects prepared at the university level, or at two or more parts of the UO, or in the absence of an ethics committee for research at the relevant UO faculty.

The Ethics Committee for Research at the UO has seven members and seven alternates. The members and alternates of the Ethics Committee for Research at the UO are appointed by the Rector in the form of a measure on the proposal of the Vice-Rector, whose competence includes the managing creative activities at the UO, and after discussion in the Academic Council of the UO, so that one member and one alternate are appointed from each faculty.

The Ethics Committee for Research at the UO is defined in the Code of Ethics for Employees and Students of the University of Ostrava, Article 8.
