TechEthos policy event: Ethics for the Green and Digital Transition
The TechEthos project presents their final one-day policy event in Brussels on the ethical governance of emerging technologies for the green and digital transition.
Interested to attend the event?
TechEthos will hold an in-person policy event in Brussels, Belgium, on 14 November 2023, co-hosted by Barbara Thaler, Member of the European Parliament & STOA Panel. The event focuses on the ethical governance of emerging technologies in the digital transformation and green transition. The event will bring together high-level experts in these fields, including EU policymakers, researchers from academia, and industry representatives to discuss the ethical governance of emerging technologies for the digital transformation and green transition.
The morning session will focus on ethics for the digital transformation, whilst the afternoon programme is dedicated to ethics for the green transition (see full programme below). Both the morning and afternoon programme feature keynote speeches and expert panel discussions on the ethical governance of emerging technologies in the digital and green transition. This conference will tap into ongoing ethical debates as well as existing and expected EU policy debates such as the proposed AI Act, the implementation of the Digital Services Act and Digital Markets Act, the European Green Deal, and the EC proposal for a Carbon Removal Certification Framework.
Whether you’re a policymaker, industry professional, researcher, or simply interested in the ethical implications of the green and digital transition, this event offers a unique opportunity to learn from experts, engage in meaningful discussions, and network with like-minded individuals.
Don’t miss out on this exciting event! Mark your calendars and join us for a day of learning, collaboration, and exploration.
