About us

CUREG2.0’s role is to:

1) assess ethical aspects of research projects:

  • that involve human participants and fall outside the scope of the Swiss Federal Human Research Act (RS 810.30);

  • that take place in open spaces ­– typically outside a lab – and that could have an adverse impact on the environment; or

  • whose results could serve multiple purposes and have military, security, political or intelligence-related implications;

2) assess, where necessary, inter-institutional research projects involving a researcher from the University of Geneva;

3) identify and approve the ethical principles and rules applicable to the research projects mentioned in points 1 and 2 above;

4) promote training on research ethics;

5) advise researchers on ethical aspects of their research projects.
