External Ethics Advisory Board

The External Ethics Advisory Board (EEAB) exercises an independent external advisory role on the activities of the Biobank in order to protect both the Biobank participants and CoE researchers. It considers potential risks and benefits for the community in which the Biobank research will be carried out and its ultimate goal is to support the Academic Council for promoting high ethical standards in CoE health research. The EEAB will be exercising a supervisory role of the Biobank operation and comment or even suggest amendments in the modus operandi of the Biobank.

The EEAB meets every 4 – 6 months and receives updates when necessary.
