TechEthos plans to turn much of its work into ready-to-use tools. Here is a small preview of what you can expect.

  • Societal Readiness Tool

    People often ask themselves: how ready is a particular technology to make its entry into society? Its ethical, legal and social status matter and this tool will allow actors such as researchers and innovators to weigh, compare and evaluate these aspects and make a judgement.
  • Ethical Role-Paying Tool

    With the help of vignettes, players can take on different ethical concerns and issues from different roles. Whether faced with a consensus or a genuine dilemma, the main message is that ethical values need to be considered and weighed even when there is no way to provide an answer that addresses them fully.
  • TechEthos Anticipatory Ethics Model

    Based on reflection on own experiences with ethical analysis in the project, this model will help researchers, analysts and policy makers who wish to assess the ethical issues of emerging technologies.
  • Digital exhibitions

    These interactive exhibitions allow you to explore the technologies selected in the project, the scenarios, and the attitudes, values and concerns they triggered amongst different publics. Ultimately, they allow you to join a dialogue and leave your mark.
  • Policy briefs

    A series of policy briefs will distill our outputs and encourage policy makers to lead the way in ethically-informed decision making on the governance of technologies.
