Ethics clause in support of hospital research
A specific ethical clause is added to funding agreements with hospital research teams, so as to avoid any conflict of interest with Air Liquide's business:
Considering that Air Liquide SA (ALSA) and Air Liquide Santé International (ALSI) are the founding members of the Fondation Air Liquide and that subsidiaries of ALSA or ALSI provide medical gases or homecare services, the undersigned, who is carrying out or supervising research that is funded by the Fondation Air Liquide, commits that:
- the financing from the Fondation Air Liquide will in no way influence his/her prescription policy, or that of his/her team.
- he/she will not take part in any commission tasked with buying medical gases within 5 years of the last agreement signed with the Fondation Air Liquide
