Science, Etchics and Technological Responsibility in Developing and Emerging Countries

Objective

The project general aim is to support the research systems of two countries, India (an emerging economy/EE) and Kenya (a Developing Country/DC), by assisting them in developing their own research ethics perspective within the context of an initiative in favour of research activity and in the sharing of responsibility on scientific and technological research (STR). The promoters intend to contribute to achieving the objective of developing actions of capacity building in DC and EE, by means of an international dialogue, in the field of ethics and science. The specific objectives to be achieved through initiatives of coordination, capacity building, training and awareness raising, are: to strengthen the levels of information and awareness on ethical issues connected with ST by fostering a dialogue among scientists from different parts of the planet; to integrate ethical issues to the wider issue of enhancing the socialisation of research (this notion refers to the dynamics and processes of a social nature that are incorporated in scientific and technological research.), in view of the strengthening of local research systems (with particular attention to the factors that can facilitate or hinder the development of STR systems; to activate processes of building institutional capacities and skills on these themes; to develop ethical guidelines and standards that refer to international instruments and codes on ethics but which are also sensitive to and compatible with the local values, STR levels and needs; to define perspectives of socialisation of science and technology that take into consideration local needs and are in compliance with EU standards in ethics. The project will have an overall duration of 36 months and include 12 WP.
