ERCIM Workshop: Digital Ethics - current state and vision in ERCIM countries

Tuesday, 26 May 2020 13:00-16:00

In the current global digitalization of all human activities and the main role in this transformation of research institutions in informatics and mathematics, ERCIM is establishing a Working Group on Digital Ethics. Its initial workshop will be held in conjunction with the ERCIM 2020 spring meetings.

The goal of this initial workshop will be
1) to share between the ERCIM institutes the current state of development of Digital Ethics in their countries including the setup of Digital Ethics committees either operational or in general and
2) to draft a roadmap of possible cooperations and actions inside and outside ERCIM to study and promote ethics of digital sciences, technologies, innovations and usages, most particularly on the topics of informatics and mathematics, relevant to the ERCIM institutes.

The workshop is open to all ERCIM members.
