When data is to be used for scientific research, attach an up-to-date research plan and a research permit from the responsible/target organisation to your application. Also attach an opinion from the Ethics Committee, if the legislation applying to the research and/or the research setup so requires.

Criteria for scientific research (in general):

  • an appropriate research plan
  • responsible person or group
  • results to be published as a scientific publication
  • research produces new information.
