Ethics of research and innovation: EU and national policies

Day 1, 9/18/17 1:30 pm - 9/18/17 2:50 pm

Policy-makers are critical actors in the ethics assessment landscape; their decisions and actions can nurture high standards of ethics assessment. This session will present policy-making perspectives on ethics assessment of R&I. Policy-makers will consider and debate how the results of the SATORI project could be helpful to their institutions, taken-up and/or supported by them. The session will also discuss how SATORI could make an impact at the EU Member State level.
