Project information sheet

I’ve just had confirmation back from the Central University Research Ethics Committee (CUREC) that the Open Data Impacts project has been approved, so – uploaded here is a copy of the approved Project Information Sheet & Informed Consent Statement (PDF) for reference  (and so I’ve got an easy URL to link people to for it in future…)

    Hey, congrats! Just curious if this process is required for all research projects in the UK involving human subjects? I was used to this in the US but it doesn’t seem to be the case in the Netherlands.

    Will you be at ECF this year? I’m planning to attend. Let’s catch up!

    There is an approval process – at my old university it was implemented in recent years, at my current university I’m not sure because I haven’t submitted any relevant projects yet.

    I hadn’t heard of students having to go through it at all, though. I think it’s great – really gives you an idea of the whole process.

    Looking forward to seeing you in a couple weeks!
