09-10 January 2020, Maastricht (Netherlands)
PERSONA will feature at this workshop on Digitalisation, Ethics and EU Fundamental Rights.
The debate on the impact of digitalization on EU fundamental rights and the development of ethical principles is gradually gaining attention. In the context of digitalization, new and emerging technologies – such as IoT, blockchain and smart cities, AI, Big Data, etc. – pose challenges and threats in relation to the existing EU fundamental rights framework. The workshop Digitalisation, Ethics and EU Fundamental Rights aims to contribute to the academic and policy debate by discussing these highly important questions in an interdisciplinary setting. It aims to include speakers from law, political science, philosophy (ethics), social sciences and technology. Organisers expressly encourage both junior (PhD or PostDoc level) and senior researchers to apply. Given the applied nature of NOVA-EU project, they strongly encourage participants to reflect on the problems also from the policy perspective with the view of offering policy recommendations during the workshop
