Ethics and Society
Ethics and Society is part of the Human Brain Project's research core. Through its research and ethics management, it promotes Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) practices within the HBP, and helps to shape the direction of the HBP in ethically sound ways that serve the public interest.
Ethics and Society carries out research to identify and address the conceptual, social, ethical, legal and cultural implications and challenges raised by HBP research. We focus on foresight, neuroethics, philosophy, public engagement, and researcher awareness. Ethics and Society also translates ethics research into practice by implementing ethics management and compliance programmes for the HBP, and collaborates with an independent Ethics Advisory Board (EAB), as well as produces Opinions on the most immediately relevant ethical issues within the HBP.
