Beyond Compliance - Digital Ethics in Research

Beyond ComplianceParis, 17-18 October 2022

The ERCIM Ethics Working Group organises a workshop in Paris on 17 and 18 October, targeted at researchers and Research Ethics Boards (REBs). The event will consist of keynotes, presentations, tutorials and interactive sessions, and will provide ample time for open discussions.

Researchers in digital sciences face tough ethical questions in their daily activity for which there are not yet consensual answers among the research community. The forum “Beyond Compliance” aims at advancing the discussion about those issues. The outcomes of the workshop will provide input for policy makers.
