The ethics committees at the University of Kassel
The University of Kassel has a central and two internal facutly ethics committees:
- The central ethics committee at the University of Kassel, , which started its work during the 2018/19 winter semester, supports and advises researchers and academics from the faculties 02, 06-16 and the Kunsthochschule. The committee checks research projects from an ethical point of view, when requested to do so in writing, and assesses safety-relevant research risks. Its response to the research project comes in the form of an ethical appraisal with a view to the envisaged methodical completion and an estimate of the consequences, particularly for human beings and the environment. The central ethics committee is managed by the Research Services Office.
- The ethics committee in the Humanitirs faculty exclusively assesses applications from faculty 01. The major focus of the committee’s work is therefore in the fields of psychology and education.
- For Social Sciences, an ethics committee discusses applications from its own area. Researchers in this field can contact the internal committee of faculty 05.
