Technical support

Expert teams

Two task forces of experts have been set up with practical experience in national ethics committees. One is English-speaking and one is French-speaking with practical experience in national ethics committees. A task force of Spanish-speaking experts will be set up as soon as this is required.

During preparatory meetings in Paris in November and December 2006 the experts have developed a common methodology and a plan of action.

 

Project phases

The project will follow three phases:

  1. provide practical recommendations in order to establish national bioethics committees;
  2. support national bioethics committees, once established, in developing appropriate working methods and operational procedures; and
  3. improve the functioning of bioethics committees, once operational, through evaluation, training and networking.
