Objective

It is the overall aim of ETHICSWEB to stimulate an enhanced democratic debate on ethical issues of science and to promote a more engaged and informed public. Therefore, existing information and documentation systems will be connected to allow and ensure an easy access to comprehensive information on science and ethics. At the same time sophisticated tools, both technical and semantic, will be applied or – if necessary developed – to make the huge amount of information available for all parties involved. ETHICSWEB will be a common, decentralized European access point for information that is made available in different European member states, by various regional providers and centres as well as by international organizations. ETHICSWEB strives for the documentation of different sources which include information on ethics and science like literature; laws, regulations and guidelines; training materials and training programmes; academic exchange programmes; centres, projects and experts; events and news (such as conferences, calls for papers and new initiatives). In order to reach the goal of connecting existing activities it is necessary to establish a modular and dynamic infrastructure for systematic and inter-connected European documentation, information and communication system.
