We coordinate the management of ethical issues across the Human Brain Project. This includes the interaction with the European Commission and its ethics reviewers for ethics checks, ethics reviews, or ethics audits, as well as coordinating all work on ethics across all work packages in the project. The task also includes the ethics rapporteur programme, and communications activities to promote responsible research and innovation in the Human Brain Project.
