Tilburg University Ethics Review Boards

Tilburg University believes it is important that all research carried out within the university complies with the Dutch Code of Conduct for Scientific Integrity. This means, among other things, that research involving human participants is submitted to an ethics committee (when necessary), that researchers carefully manage their data, and that privacy legislation (GDPR) is complied with.

The committees within Tilburg University are organised per faculty. The application form and procedure can be found on the faculty pages.
Tilburg University has opted for an integrated approach to Ethics, Data Management and the AVG. The committees use virtually the same application form to assess these aspects.
