Please note that the CUREC 1, CUREC 2 and CUREC 3 Research Ethics application forms have been updated to reflect the requirements of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect on 25 May 2018. The revised forms are available from the CUREC website and now ask for more specific information about how researchers plan to collect, manage and store personal data associated with their research.
Revised guidance about Data Protection and Research, incorporating GDPR requirements, has been prepared by the University’s Information and Compliance Team, available at https://researchsupport.admin.ox.ac.uk/policy/data. This guidance also includes a checklist for researchers to consider when preparing an application to the Medical Sciences Interdivisional Research Ethics Committee (MS IDREC) and drafting information for participants in research projects.
The new forms are introduced with immediate effect and must replace any versions you may have stored locally. Please bear in mind that applications for ethical review using previous versions of the forms cannot be accepted after 30 April 2018.
