The Doctoral School of Health & Life Sciences of UHasselt organizes a session on research ethics, given by Prof. Dr. Wim Pinxten. All PhD students of the DS H&LS need to follow this course (or an equivalent) once during their PhD according to the minimal requirements defined by the Doctoral School. We recommend you to follow this course in your first year.

This training will introduce you to the cornerstones of research ethics and provide tips and tricks for handling ethical issues in the preparation of a research protocol and actual research practice.
