Central Ethics Committee

The Central Ethics Committee at Leibniz University Hannover is an independent body which assesses the ethical acceptability of research projects on humans or using human data that are to be conducted at Leibniz University Hannover (LUH) or Hannover University of Music, Drama and Media (HMTMH) prior to such projects being carried out. The procedures of the Central Ethics Committee follow the rules of procedure of the Ethics Committee of the German Society for Psychology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Psychologie).

At the end of the procedure, the Committee issues a written statement detailing either the ethical acceptability or reservations. The decision is addressed to the applicant(s). Responsibility for carrying out the project lies solely with the head of the research project.

For medical research proposals a further ethics committee must be consulted.

Researchers from Leibniz University Hannover and Hannover University of Music, Drama and Media are entitled to apply for assessment.
