Research lies within the scope of two European projects. Those projects
investigate ethical governance in EU research projects with the goal of
providing a framework for improved governance mechanisms that will
address potential ethical issues arising from new and emerging
technologies. Studying current governance arrangements in actual ICT
projects (and in particular in Ambient Intelligence project) will help
to produce a better understanding of the efficiency and limits of
current ethics governance. This will be applied to the relevant ethical
issues identified which will lead to a recommendation of successful
governance arrangements that will address ethical issues in emerging
ICTs before or as they arise. The recommendations for individual issues
will be used to develop general policy recommendations.

The researcher's work will include: Review of ICT ethics governance -
Research on ICT ethics governance in current European projects -
Evaluation of effectiveness of current governance arrangements -
Application of suitable governance arrangements to most relevant issues
