The Ethics Committee has been created to guarantee that research activities respect fundamental ethics principles, including those reflected in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.

These principles include the need to ensure the freedom of research and the need to protect the physical and moral integrity of individuals and the welfare of animals.
