Welcome at the cETO online application portal.

Here you can request a cETO approval for your research. You can choose between three tracks:

  1. Full track: full assessment of the ethical aspects of the study (with or without advice on WMO obligation). Usually for OU researchers.  
  2. Fast track: brief assessment of ethical aspects of the study (focus on participant information, informed consent, personal data protection act ) only possible under certain conditions (more information further on)) (usually students master’s thesis, internship)
  3. Amendment: in case of previously by cETO approved applications (only possible under certain conditions (more information further on).

Note.

  • It is not allowed to start the study before cETO approval.
  • In case of questions please contact ceto@ou.nl
