SIENNA - Stakeholder-informed ethics for new technologies with high socio-economic and human rights impact✎
The SIENNA project will address ethical issues in three new and emerging technology areas: human genomics, human enhancement and human-machine interaction. These areas all come with major socio-economic impact. They also raise issues related to human rights.
Our ethical analysis is based on research and informed by stakeholders. We will identify and assess ethical issues and risks and produce three ethical frameworks: one for each technology area. Based on these frameworks, we will develop research ethics protocols and professional ethical codes.
The outcome of the SIENNA project will be recommendations for regulations and professional codes of conduct. Our recommendations will be informed by both experts and citizens via:
- Expert interviews
- Workshops with experts and civil society organisations
- 11 surveys with 1,000 citizens each in different countries
- Citizen panels in five countries
