The ERC-FoE was established in 2022 to guide the staff and students of the Faculty of Engineering or any other interested party conducting research through policies and procedures for the ethical conduct of research. The ERC-FOE shall report to the Faculty Board of the Faculty of Engineering. ERC-FOE will act in accordance with the TOR approved by the Faculty Board of the Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya, while liaising with external research ethics committees.
The application process is directed through the Application Guideline, which can be downloaded through the provided link. Any activity conforming to the definition of research needs clearance where human participants (physical testing or any other), testing animals, and using ecosystem resources are involved. Any such investigators, staff or students of the Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya or any other interested individuals/institutions may apply for research clearance through this process. The research proposals will be subjected to review by the experts nominated by the Ethical Review Committee of the Faculty of Engineering (ERC-FoE).
We wish you success in your research!
