CUREG 2.0

Certification procedure

The questionnaire that you're about to complete has several sections, which are described below. The answers you provide in section B "Self-assessment of risks" will determine whether a full review of your project is needed. You will be automatically redirected to section C (signature), D (full review – human participants) or E (full review – the environment) depending on your answers to the questions in section B.

You don’t have to fill out the questionnaire in one go – you can always come back to it later. But to do that, you must be sure to click on “Save for later” at the bottom of the screen. If you don’t, all the information you’ve entered will be lost.

You can move back and forth between the different sections of the questionnaire. However, be sure to do this using the “Back” and “Next” buttons at the bottom of the screen, rather than using your browser’s back and forward buttons, to avoid losing any unsaved data.

If you have any questions about the questionnaire and the answers you are expected to give, please contact us at commission-ethique@unige.ch.

If your research project will involve human participants or concerns the environment, you must contact us at the above address before starting the questionnaire.
