Ethics Committee of the University of Vienna

An Ethics Committee was set up at the University of Vienna in 2011 and enshrined in the University's Statutes. The Committee includes expert representatives from various academic disciplines. The Ethics Committee is tasked with ensuring compliance with ethical principles in research. This entails the review of ethics applications, which are submitted for planned research projects.

Researchers at the University of Vienna can avail themselves of the Committee's services if their research activities touch on ethically relevant aspects and may wish to ensure that their research does not involve any potentially unethical and/or adverse effects for the persons or animals involved or the environment. 

The website and the intranet provide further information on the Ethics Committee and the submission of ethics applications.
