The University of Barcelona's Bioethics Commission (CBUB) evaluates research projects to be carried out by members of the University of Barcelona community (academics and researchers) that are presented in competitive calls managed through the University's Office of Research Management (OGR) and Office for International Research Projects (OPIR). The favourable opinion of an ethics committee at a research centre where a research project is going to be carried out is a legally established requisite for initiating any research involving humans, biological samples of human origin or personal data.



The XVI International Seminar of the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics of the University of Barcelona will be held on February 10, 2022, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Spanish time, UTC+1), under the name of "Emerging technologies and personal data protection in health".

The writer and journalist Marta Peirano will give the inaugural conference "Icontrol: la frontera de los datos médicos en el mundo post-covid" ("Icontrol: the frontier of health data in the post-covid world").


The Bioethics Commission of University of Barcelona (CBUB) reminds you that, since 2020, the UB has a code of conduct for research integrity that is applicable to all researchers and other agents who participate in research processes and knowledge transfer.
