For Staff, there are two types of applications – E2U Form, reviewed by a full Sub-Committee and the Light Touch Form, reviewed by two Committee members, outside of the normal meeting dates. The E2U form has now been moved to Converis and must be completed online. All additional documentation such as the Participant Information Sheet, Consent Form, and Privacy Notice are also to be uploaded on Converis. They can be found below. The Declaration by Research Team document below must be signed by all research team members and also uploaded on Converis as part of the application.
The Light Touch Form, Request for Study Amendment Form, and Additional Study to Approved Programme Form will continue as Word documents. All applications should be discussed in advance with your Faculty Research Ethics Officer (FREO).
Once an E2U ethics application is received by the Ethics Office, it will be added to the agenda of the relevant Research Ethics Sub-Committee at the next available opportunity. A maximum of 12 applications will be considered at each meeting. Applications will be allocated for review on a strictly first come, first served basis. Once the limit has been reached, any further applications will be carried forward to the next meeting. Click here to see the timeline of the Ethics Application Process.
