UNICA-Eutopia Panel on research ethics | 27 January 2022, 10:00-11:30 CET

Promoted by Stockholm University and Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

The webinar is an opportunity to discuss existing and emerging ethical challenges in European research projects. The session will include a keynote address followed by a panel session with research ethics staff at UNICA’s member universities.

The webinar aims to find responses to the following questions among others:

  • Are researchers sufficiently motivated to address ethics issues? What factors influence their motivation?
  • What are the main practical challenges researchers face when implementing ethics requirements?
  • Is there enough support in dealing with new and emerging ethics domains (such as dual use technologies, gene editing, artificial intelligence, etc.).

The webinar will be introduced by a speech about ethics from the perspective of the European Commission by Dorian Karatzas, Head of Sector for Ethics and Research Integrity at the EC.

Other contributors include:

Professor Karmen Toros, Talinn University, Estonia

Professor Aliyah Morgernstern, Sorbonne Nouvelle, France

Professor Aura Kivilaasko, Helsinki University, Finland

Antonella Ficorilli, Società per l’Epidemiologia e la Prevenzione “Giulio A. Maccacaro” Milan, Italy
