Final Report - ENWISE ETHICS (Starting a Debate with Women scientists from Post- communist Countries on Ethical Issues)

Project ID: 503316
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

It remained largely unknown if there is a gender dimension concerning science-related ethical issues, like for example sensitive questions brought into the forefront of interest by the advance of biotechnological methods, in the Central Eastern European countries and in the Baltic States. It was with this notion in mind that the ENWISE ETHICS project was started and this final report delves into. It notes that scientists, and in particular women scientists, should pay more attention to the interrelation and interaction of gender and ethics in new scientific developments. Scientists should not exclude themselves from the education of the general public, nor the media, the role of which was indicated as a priority. Science journalists should provide accurate information in the dissemination of scientific research and should participate in promoting adequate public information campaigns.
