The purpose of the Institutional Advisory Board for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research at IMT Atlantique (in French, CICPPR
) is to ensure that the projects submitted comply with internationally recognized ethical principles for research involving human subjects.
The committee issues an advisory opinion and does not deal with issues regarding animals or legal entities and is not intended to assess the compliance of your project with the GDPR regulations. It aims to protect human beings participating in research - outside the regulatory framework of biomedical research - as well as the public dissemination of the data resulting from such research. CICPPR opinions are based on the following: an ethical examination of the research objectives; the methods used, particularly with respect to how subjects are recruited; the methods of information, participation and acquisition of participant consent. The committee also examines the confidentiality and protection of personal data, as well as the consideration given to the possible consequences of the research on participants.
The committee is consulted at the request of a research professor, researcher or staff member attached to an IMT Atlantique research unit or to an institution that has signed an agreement with IMT Atlantique.
