Location: The Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin

Date: 5 Jul - 6 Jul

The “Ethics in Research and Innovation: Methods and Best Practice” workshop will take place on 5th and 6th of July 2018 in Trinity College Dublin, and will gather prominent experts from the fields of data ethics, applied ethics and responsible research and innovation from across academia, industry and civil society organisations. Its main purpose is to discuss and share knowledge about the state of the art and best practices concerning methods for practising ethics in R&I. The workshop is sponsored by the ADAPT Centre for digital content technologies.

As digital technologies play a larger and larger role in our everyday lives, the ethics of their application becomes increasing to the fore of public perceptions. However, the development of a robust ethical practice that can be applied to the ever-accelerating research and innovation (R&I) processes underpinning new digital technologies remains a challenge. While governments are moving towards improving protection of individual data privacy, e.g. through the EU introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation, private bodies and public organisations are struggling to establish robust ethical principles that can keep pace the accelerating rate of change in digital technologies.
