Organisations in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are carrying out a new programme of work together to implement
- A consistent nationwide approach to sharing information between sponsor and sites
- A single ethics and R&D online submission from the Integrated Research Application System (IRAS), and
- An improved UK-wide approach to amendments.
The aim is to ensure compatible and consistent ways of working across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland further developing the UK as a cohesive and streamlined place to undertake research within the global economy.
The work was formally announced in March 2017. More information can be found in the news section.
