This proposal is based on final report from "Ethical Cluster". The first summer school is mentioned in this application The objectives are to create a platform, where members of the European research ethics committees and secretariats can share their expe riences; to develop mutual understand-ing; through training generally improve the quality of the work of research ethics com-mittees and to develop a model for future summer schools This proposal thus fully serves the main aim of the Science and Society c all: "to im-prove mutual understanding of the cross-national and cross-cultural dimension of re-search ethics in Europe." It also fulfils a need for more cooperation between member states as still more research becomes cross-border projects. Participant s: 25 participants. The participants in the summer school should be members of ethics committees in the member states or employees at the secretariats of such committees. The participants must have practical experience from ethic committee and fulfil one of the following criteria: - either as a member of a local/national ethic committee, - as an employer in secretariats of such committees or - as an organizer of such committees on local/national level. The organizers ensure, that participants represent as many countries as possible. The summer school runs over five working days in June 2005 The long-term strategies are to hold a summer school each year with a basic common content and a theme to vary every year. Financing: Long term: Participants fees plus subsidy from the Danish National Committee. First school, year 2005: Participants fees + Danish subsidy + EU support (this application).
