Human Research Ethics and Governance Collaborative Group

Human Research Ethics and Governance Collaborative Group

The Human Research Ethics and Governance (HREG) Collaborative Group was established by HTQ in 2016 to collaborate on best practice and streamline research ethics and governance processes. The group brings together research ethics and governance representatives from each of the HTQ partners, along with key specialist advisors from partner and non-partner organisations.
