The Human Research Ethics and Governance Advisory Group, chaired by Sonia Hancock, is developing a framework for greater harmonisation and streamlining of research ethics and governance, education and training.
Key initiatives of our Human Research Ethics and Governance Advisory Group include:
development of a collaborative research agreement for low-risk human research
development of a third-party collaborative research agreement (for partners working with non-partner organisations)
a suite of tools for using the collaborative research agreement
human research ethics national online conference
standardisation of an annual report template.
The Human Research Ethics and Governance Advisory Group brings together research ethics and governance representatives from each of the partners, along with key specialist advisors from both partner and non-partners organisations.
