  • Prof. Dr. Stephan Rixen (External member, Universität zu Köln)

The revised edition of the Ordnung zur Einrichtung einer Ethikkommission des Senates der Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), enacted by the Senate on November 3, 2021, determines which research projects are reviewed by the commission, which persons are entitled to submit applications (§3), and how the application procedure ensues (§4). It also explains the examination procedure for research projects.
The commission informs applicants about the result of the review in a substantiated vote in the form of “approval”, “approval under reserve and, if applicable, with requirements”, or “rejection” (§5).
