Local Ethics Committee of the Faculty
Upon request, the Local Ethics Committee (LEC) reviews the ethical acceptability of the objectives and procedures of a research project in psychology or human movement science.
Proposals can be submitted by the researchers responsible for the research project at the Faculty of Psychology and Human Movement Sciences. If the proposal is submitted by students (BSc, MSc), the supervisor must act as co-applicant and sign the proposal.
Please note: In order to take into account and support the ongoing internationalization of our university, all communication of the LEC will be switched to English with immediate effect. Please submit your proposals in English. Corresponding templates are available for download. Further information can also be found in the proposal submission instructions, which are also available for download.
The LEC cannot provide an assessment on hygiene concepts and the like for studies during the COVID pandemic. Please refer to the detailed instructions on the conduct of studies in the current regulations of the University of Hamburg. Thank you.
