On Thursday, 18 November 2010, the CCSR director, Prof. B. Stahl gave a presentation on the ETICA project that he coordinates (www.etica-project.eu). This presentation took place in the context of a workshop on "Governance and Ethics of Emerging ICT and Security Technologie" organised by the European Commission.
The meeting was co-hosted by the European Parliament's Science and Technology Options Assessment panel (http://www.europarl.europa.eu/stoa/default_en.htm), which allowed it to be held in the European Parliament. Several members of European Parliament were present when the ETICA project and a number of related projects were discussed.
The purpose of the meeting was to provide input to policy makers and to prepare a further high-level meeting taking place on the 19th of November hosted by the European Commission. Prof Stahl represented DMU and the CCSR during this meeting as well.
