Panel session A – Ethical Impact Assessment – working with the CEN standard

Day 2, 9/13/17 1:45 pm - 9/13/17 2:45 pm

The ethical impact assessment (EIA) framework proposed by the SATORI project aims to make research and innovation (R&I) more responsive to ethical challenges arising during the R&I process. The CEN standard that is based on the EIA framework offers guidance to research funding and performing organisations, as well as to industry, on how to conduct an EIA.

In this session, representatives of the SATORI project will introduce the EIA framework and the standard based on the framework. Attending stakeholders will be asked for input regarding the practicality of the standard in concrete R&I contexts, the usefulness of the standard for helping to identify, evaluate and mitigate ethical impacts in R&I. Additionally, stakeholders will be asked how they see the EIA standard to fit existing regulatory frameworks and how it could be widely promoted to inform best practices in R&I.
