Ethical Issues in information and communication technology (ICT) research & development

Increasing attention is being paid to ethical issues relating to ICT development. All projects submitted to Horizon 2020 must respect fundamental ethical principles in order to be funded though these may not be so obvious for many engaged in ICT. This workshop aims to introduce the topic of ethics to ICT practitioners, explaining what the issues are and through the use of case studies show what some of the pitfalls might be in the case of advanced technology and applications development.

The workshop is particularly suitable for those whose work is likely to be subjected to ethical review. This includes researchers, research managers involved in ICT and especially those who are applying for funding from the European Commission.

Target group:                             Reearchers and research managers in ICT

Duration:                                   1 day
