Our expertise

We are experts in ethics, law and technology with decades of experience in supporting large-scale, cross-border research. We have provided advice on projects ranging from large-scale clinical trials of Ebola vaccine candidates, and cross-border paediatric oncology trials all the way to market-entry requirements for innovative implants. If it’s innovative, we can help.

Our services assist clients in identifying and tackling difficult ethics and compliance issues. Our advice enables researchers to engage with patients and research participants in a meaningful way. We augment autonomy, make research faster and increase its quality.

Who we are

Founded by Professor Nils Hoppe, together with members of his team of the Centre for Ethics and Law in the Life Sciences at the University of Hannover, consentris is a collective of experts from around the world. For each client, a bespoke team is assembled that reflects that client’s particular requirements.

We perform analyses, provide advice and draft governance structures for our clients. Where appropriate, we make our unique patient engagement platform available.

Why is consent important?

“While the primary purpose of medical research is to generate new knowledge, this goal can never take precedence over the rights and interests of individual research subjects.” (Declaration of Helsinki)

It is one of the principal achievements of the biomedical sciences in the 20th century to establish the patient as a partner, rather than as a passive recipient of treatment. This is reflected in the weight given to questions of information, consent and patient engagement in the clinical setting, as well as in the research setting. At the same time, the way consent is obtained has not changed since the 1950s. We want to change this and bring consent into the 21st century.
