Who is this policy brief for? - For policymakers and other stakeholders who set guidelines for, or make recommendations to research ethics committees.
Why was it prepared? - To foster and support good practices in ethics committees across Europe.
The SATORI project aims at supporting mutual learning in ethics assessment and
guidance across stakeholders, and harmonising ethics assessment in Europe and
beyond. Research ethics committees (RECs) form a crucial part of any framework
for ethics assessment. Therefore, the SATORI project studied good practices in RECs
aims, organisation and procedures across different institutions and jurisdictions. The present Policy Brief outlines our findings.
