[CALL FOR APPLICATIONS] The Research Ethics Committee launches a call for new members

From June 4, 2024 to July 12, 2024

Call extended until July 12, 2024

Established in 2022, the Université de Lyon’s Research Ethics Committee (CER-UdL - Comité d'éthique de la recherche) supports researchers who wish to ensure the ethics of their research protocols (except for research involving human subjects). It will welcome new members at the start of the 2024/25 academic year.

The CER-UdL complements the existing ethics committees and is operationally attached to the Université de Lyon. It addresses non-interventional human research protocols, i.e., protocols that do not involve human subjects (known as the “Jardé Law”) or animal testing.

The committee includes members from a number of disciplines, as well as methodologists (quantitative and qualitative), ethics specialists, lawyers, as well as historians, philosophers and sociologists of science. The committee also includes corporate representatives as guest members.

Its President and Vice-President, who are members of the committee, are appointed by the President of the UdL, following a proposal from the committee.

They are expected to meet once a month, with a minimum of 50 files to be reviewed per year.
