For whom?

The BROK is mandatory for researchers who are involved in research subject to the WMO. Researchers must be BROK certified at the start of the study (or the moment their study activities start).

The BROK is recommended for researchers involved in research that is not subject to the WMO. These researchers are obligated to complete the Radboudumc specific e-learning on human-related scientific research.

For more information on training requirements, see the policy guideline on Training.
