Ethical Advisory Board

The Ethical Advisory Board (EAB) will be established before the start of the study, it consists of 1 ethical expert in Belgium (the country of the project coordinator) and 4 relevant Chinese experts from local and national levels. This board will not be involved in the actual research and will work completely independent.

A report by the Ethical Advisory Board will be submitted to the EC together with the periodic reports.

Meetings: Frequency of EAB meetings will relate with the timing of ethical approvals.
