Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, and Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, have officially launched the new European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies by appointing 15 high-calibre members. The appointments follow the renewal of the EGE's legal mandate and the publication of the Call for Expression of Interest in 2016.
The new Group brings together leading experts from Europe and worldwide, from the fields of natural and social sciences and humanities, philosophy, ethics and law. Members range from scientists who have spearheaded cutting-edge biomedical techniques, to leading scholars in the study of information technologies, philosophy of science and human rights law. They bring a wealth of experience advising governments on the societal and human rights implications of current and future developments.
