Time-Sensitive, COVID-19-Related Research Projects

CIREP has developed an expedited review procedure for non-biomedical research projects that are related to the pandemic situation and thus time-sensitive. The need for an external review is exceptionally waived, and the review process typically takes 10-20 days.
For some projects already approved by CIREP, certain aspects may need to be modified in order to carry on with the data collection in the present circumstances. If you have any doubts about your approved project, we are at your disposal.   

The personal data protection regulations have not been altered by the current situation. You may direct your questions related to personal data protection to [email protected].  

The Institutional Committee for Ethical Review of Projects (CIREP-UPF), established in December 2014, wants to contribute to the improvement of ethics and personal data protection standards in research activities and academic practices related to human beings within the UPF community. Among other tasks, CIREP is in charge of evaluating research projects subject to ethics review and giving its approval by issuing binding reports.
