Ethics Advisory Board
The Human Brain Project's Ethics Advisory Board (EAB) is an independent body that advises the Project's Science and Infrastructure Board (SIB) and Directorate (DIR) on specific ethical, regulatory, social and philosophical issues raised by research that is being undertaken or planned under the umbrella of the Human Brain Project.
The Ethics Advisory Board offers advice both on its own initiative, but also answers to requests made by researchers, or other members of the Human Brain Project, about specific ethical, regulatory, and social issues arising from their research within the Project or work undertaken by collaborators. Recommendations from the board are advisory in nature, which means that individual researchers, investigators, laboratories and institutions retain their legal responsibilities under the terms of local, national and international regulations, as well as professional obligations in place from time to time.
Each member has a linkage with Ethics Rapporteurs (ERs) from the HBP's Work Packages in accordance with their background and expertise. Additional information, including a short biography, of each member can be obtained by clicking on their name.
