The i-CONSENT project is coming to an end. After 4 years of intense work and study in the field of clinical research and bioethics we are proud to inform you that the project guidelines are ready for publication. These guidelines are the result of profound investigations to provide information and evidence to assist with the development or review of the consent process for use in clinical studies with human participants. For this reason, we would like to invite you to our event Towards the future of informed consent in clinical researcha virtual meeting to present the i-CONSENT Guidelines. The session will be held Tuesday, March 16th 2021 from 16:00 to 18:00h CET.
