Fakultät Kommissionen Ethics Committee Fees


Absorption of fees for the Ethics Committee with DFG proposals

For research projects funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), fees will be collected by the Ethics Committee. This is an external financing in this case. The fees of the Ethics Committee will be absorbed by the DFG in the event a project is approved, if they have also been requested as ‘Other Funding’ when filling the proposal. 

You will find further information on the DFG website: https://www.dfg.de/en/research-funding/proposal-funding-process/faq/faq-life-sciences
