Project deliverable Open

Ethical protocol


This Ethical Protocol materialises this commitment by identifying the partner’s responsibilities and describing the procedures and methodology to ensure that S&R research activities and pilot testing are ethically sound.
In addition, this Deliverable provides guidelines to ensure the compliance of the research activities with EU and national data protection law, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It also contains templates of an information sheet and an informed consent form to be presented to all participants in the research and data collection activities to ensure they are fully aware of the extent
of their involvement in the project and how their data is safeguarded and used.
Finally, compliance of the project research activities, and hence of the S&R platform and methodology, with ethical standards and guidelines is further ensured through the establishment of an Ethical Board of experts. This Ethical Board will monitor all ethics-related aspects in the S&R project and will consult the project consortium on the potential ethical impacts of the activities undertaken.
