Work Package 11
March 2021 – February 2024
Work Package 11 ensures the full compliance of the project with the Ethics requirements set by the European Commission under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
This entails compliance with the ethics standards for research with humans, ensuring that they participate in the project voluntarily and that their personal data is protected through consent/assent forms and anonymisation/pseudonymisation techniques. It also comprises a description of the security measures implemented to prevent unauthorised access to personal data, and of the equipment used to process it as well. The ethics requirements also include proof that any transfer of information outside the EU is in accordance with the laws of the country where the data is collected, and that any benefit-sharing arrangements with stakeholders from low and lower-middle income countries are fair. And, finally, this WP also deals with the procedures and criteria to identify and recruit research participants and makes sures that all project partners have appointed a Data Protection Officer.
