Ethics Rapporteur Program
The HBP "Ethics Rapporteur" is a scientist, a technologist or an administrator engaged in the work of the HBP who is designated with responsibility to communicate with the Ethics and Society program about the ethics, and the science and technology work of the subproject. The programme aim is to deepen understanding within and between both domains.
Ethics Rapporteurs regularly communicate with Ethics Advisory Board members and with the Ethics Management team. Joint meetings between the three bodies are held biannually.
Ethics Rapporteurs include senior and junior members, each possessing a unique set of competencies in science and ethics. The goal is to have at least two for each subproject.
If you have a question concerning the ethical, social or regulatory issues of a particular subproject you may contact one or more of the representative Ethics Rapporteurs, who are listed below.
