Ethics in Research
Ethical issues occur in all types of research. Good ethical practice comes from being aware of regulatory guidelines, statutory prohibitions and Institute policies & best practice. The Institute of Technology Tallaght is committed to promoting and supporting ethical practice across all of its educational activities, including research.
In all cases, researchers must comply with the Institute’s Ethics Policy while conducting their research. All Research involving or impacting upon human and animal participants requires ethics review by the Institute’s Research Ethics Committee, before the research project is started and before research funding can be drawn down.
