Theme description

Convergence of the medical, life, health, engineering and basic sciences holds great promises, but new technologies can also have negative effects on people’s wellbeing.

This gives rise to ethical considerations. We aim for responsible innovation, which means that ethical considerations are addressed from the early design stages, throughout the development process up to the final application of an innovation.

There should be a genuine dialogue where all stakeholders are willing to listen to each other’s values, emotions and concerns.
