The last meeting date is always the submission deadline.
We strongly recommend uploading studies in due time before the submission deadline in the event any changes need to be made. The application is not considered complete until all of the suggestions for improvement have been addressed; until then, the application will be considered submitted but not yet formally confirmed. If the application has been submitted by the deadline, you will still have five days (Tuesday 07:59) to make any subsequent corrections and/or changes. The application is considered formally complete after the applicant receives confirmation and approval to download and sign the application.
The signed application form (Part A and Part B) must be at the office by no later than Tuesday at 10:00 AM two weeks before the meeting begins in order to be discussed at the meeting. Applications submitted afterwards will be postponed for discussion until the next meeting.
The Ethics Committee would like to point out that the Medical Director's signature is required for review in Upper Austria!
The principal investigator (PI) will send an invitation to the applicant to present the study in person. If the applicant is unable to attend the meeting in person and hold the presentation, the presentation will be postponed to the next meeting.
