The purpose of the Institutional Advisory Board for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research at ITM Atlantic (IABPPR) 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 is not competent with regard to animals or legal entities and is not intended to assess the compliance of your project with the RGPD regulations. It aims to protect human beings participating in research - outside the regulatory framework of biomedical research - as well as the dissemination to the public of the data resulting from such research. The opinions are based on an ethical examination of the objectives of the research, the methods used, in particular the recruitment of populations, the methods of information, participation and collection of consent of the persons. It also examines the confidentiality and protection of personal data as well as the consideration given by the research to the possible consequences of the research on individuals.
The committee is consulted at the request of a teacher-researcher, researcher or staff member attached to an ITM Atlantique research unit or to an institution that has signed an agreement with ITM Atlantique.
