( )

A researcher (24 months 100% - M/F)

Research project

Research lies within the scope of two European projects. Those projects investigate ethical governance in EU research projects with the goal of providing a framework for improved governance mechanisms that will address potential ethical issues arising from new and emerging technologies. Studying current governance arrangements in actual ICT projects (and in particular in Ambient Intelligence project) will help to produce a better understanding of the efficiency and limits of current ethics governance. This will be applied to the relevant ethical issues identified which will lead to a recommendation of successful governance arrangements that will address ethical issues in emerging ICTs before or as they arise. The recommendations for individual issues will be used to develop general policy recommendations.

The researcher's  work will include: Review of ICT ethics governance - Research on ICT ethics governance in current European projects -  Evaluation of effectiveness of current governance arrangements - Application of suitable governance arrangements to most relevant issues identified -  Evaluation of viability of suggested governance arrangements

Ph.d.  (or high level master) from philosophy or social sciences (with a very good knowledge concerning philosophy of governance and ethics) with a strong interest in the problems involved in social integration, ethics and the governorship of new technologies.
