University of Antwerp Policy

The university implements a policy on financial conflicts of interest related to research funded by the United States Public Health Services (PHS).

This is a condition for participation in projects supported by, among others, the National Institutions of Health (NIH).

The aim is to promote objectivity in research, free from bias due to financial conflicts of interest of researchers, in its design and execution. Potential participants in PHS research should disclose any conflicts of interest prior to embarking on a PHS project.
