Research projects which are to be assessed by the Ethics Committee of the University of Vienna have to fulfil one of the following conditions:

  • projects within the University
  • projects at the University which are financed by third-party funding (with project and cost centre number)
  • doctoral/PhD thesis (after public presentation at the faculty)
  • master’s/diploma thesis (submission is only possible by the supervisor or a study law body).


The Ethics Committee of the University of Vienna CANNOT become involved in the following projects:

  • projects which are not based at the University of Vienna and therefore do not fulfil the above-mentioned criteria;
  • projects which have already begun or have been concluded;
  • projects for which other ethics committees are responsible (e.g. the Ethics Committee of the Medical University of Vienna).


Further information on the Ethics Committee is available in the Intranet of the University of Vienna.
