Welcome to TechEthos, a new EU-funded project on the ethics of new and emerging technologies with high socio-economic impact.

We aim to facilitate “ethics by design”, in other words, to bring ethical and societal values into the design and development of technology from the very beginning of the process. TechEthos will produce ethics guidelines for three to four technologies – carefully selected by our team for their potential socioeconomic impact on our societies and ethical implications – that work for different actors in the field, such as researchers, research ethics committees and policy makers.

To reconcile the needs of research and innovation and the concerns of society, we will explore the awareness, acceptance and aspirations of academia, industry and the general public alike and reflect them in the guidelines.

TechEthos is led AIT Austrian Insitute of Technology and will be carried out by a team of ten scientific institutions and six science engagement organisations from 13 European countries over a three-year period.
