All research projects conducted in HUME lab or with the use of its equipment have to go through 3 preliminary steps:
1. Default use of HUME lab is on collaborative basis. There is no charge for the use of equipment or facilities, the pragmatics of research execution however usually ask for supervision from the lab staff or someone from the core research teams, so partial affiliation of the research outcome to HUME lab. If interested in conducting research in HUME lab facilities or using its equipment, please contact us by filling up this short form. Please fill the form even if you already collaborated with HUME lab in the past. We will contact you to inquire about the stage of your research proposal and ask for further details. This stage should lead to submission of a research proposal for approval. You can download template of the protocol (and consent form)
Final version of the protocol and Consent form should be submitted via email (hume.lab (at) phil.muni.cz). We also ask researchers to seek an IRB approval for the project at this point, as it is a necessary condition for the research to be conducted in HUME lab.
2. The protocol will be sent to the Executive Board of HUME lab to provide feedback and decide about the approval for realisation of the project. Upon approval of the research project by Executive board, researchers are contacted to agree on details of collaboration and access.
3. The agreement is a formal settlement of agreed terms of conduct and outcomes of the project. It usually comprises of short description of researcher's entitlements and obligations and specifies the expected affiliation ratio of the outcome publication(s).
