University of Bath

Social Science Research Ethics Committee (SSREC)

We scrutinise the ethical implications of research grant proposals submitted to external funding bodies by University staff with a view to their endorsement.

This committee complies with the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Research Ethics Framework.

It is a sub-committee of the University Ethics Committee.

All ESRC-funded staff and PhD students should seek ethical approval through SSREC rather than their own departmental committee.

Full responsibilities of the committee are detailed in the terms of reference.

For application forms and guidance, please contact Rebecca Wise.
