The Foresight Lab at King's College London was a part of the Human Brain Project Subproject 12 and focused on identifying and evaluating the future impact of new knowledge and technologies generated by the Human Brain Project using a range of methods including action research, interviews, participant observation, literature reviews, questionnaire surveys and expert workshops.
Responsibility by Design
We are making sure the Human Brain Project continues to be developed responsibly and in accordance with ethical and legal regulations and principles, including human rights, data protection, ethics standards, and good clinical practice by undertaking research and developing advice. We are monitoring political, security, intelligence, and military uses/misuses of scientific and technological findings as well as responding to current ethical and societal concerns raised from the Human Brain Project.
We organise and facilitate dialogues with the public on potentially controversial issues and those of immediate relevance to the Human Brain Project. Our vision is to engage the European society in setting the direction for Human Brain Project research and innovation and broaden the debate on the ethical, legal and societal issues arising from the project.
Register an Ethical Concern
Anyone can requests to address ethical, regulatory and social issues in Human Brain Project research. The POint of REgistration (PORE) is HBP’s mechanism to register and identify these issues and keep track of how they are dealt with.
