Human subject protection

At LSP level each DS has one ethics leader that has been defined from the begging of the project. On top of this, all DSs have defined and drafted the needed consent forms regarding their needs and the RUCs that were covered in each one. All informed consent forms have been approved by ACTIVAGE PLG Board (Policy, Legal and Gender Board) and the local ethics committee’s prior distribution to potential participants.

All the DSs applied to get approval for the procedure they are following and the way they are handling their data from their national or local data protection authority. Moreover, all DS ethical leaders have implemented the GDPR regulation and a Data Protection Officer (DPO) for each DS has been identified.
