Ethical approval


If you plan to do research in Sweden that involves processing of sensitive personal data, you must have an ethical approval from the Swedish Ethical Review Authority before you begin your research. An ethical approval may also be required under other circumstances that involve research on humans or on human biological material. You can enable others to reuse your data by specifying in the application how the data is going to be shared. The application that you send in to the Swedish Ethical Review Authority has to be in Swedish.

Renewing an ethical approval

If you already have an ethical approval but the application was written without having data sharing via FEGA Sweden in mind, you may want to apply for a renewal of the approval. Read more about renewal applications on the website of the Swedish Ethical Review Authority.
