As targets for operational efficiency and centralisation of research support services increases, the demand for streamlined ethics and governance systems to support research process grow in tandem. This session will look at the processes, pitfalls, and positives of developing a University wide online ethical approval system for all research projects (including undergraduate and postgraduate). The session will reflect upon how University policy and governance influences operational priorities, and the challenge of meeting diverse user needs can be managed; including insurance and risk management, as well as health and safety concerns. It will explore through a good practice and critical evaluation model, the development of an online ethical approval system at Northumbria university. This will be an opportunity to share good practice as well as lessons learned and will cover the importance of strategic management of the project, Faculty champions, and business readiness models for online system rollouts.

- Considered the multifaceted nature of research ethics and governance policy and its impact on university wide processes.
