All studies conducted in ESSEXLab must have received ethical approval. Please note that all bookings on the lab calendar are tentative until ethical approval for your project is received.
You will need to receive ethical approval and consent from your department research coordinator, the Faculty ethics committee, or the University of Essex ethics committee. The Research and Enterprise Office (REO) provides resources for the ethical approval processes, including templates for participant information sheets and consent forms.
You will need to receive approval and consent through the ethics committee of your home institution.
You are welcome to use resources at the University of Essex for the ethical approval processes, including templates for participant information sheets and consent forms. If you'd like to use a different form, please discuss it with our Laboratory Manager firstname.lastname@example.org during the preparation for your study.
