Neuroscience, Robotics, AI and Medical Informatics: New insights with diversity & ethics

Graz University of Technology, Austria

Sept. 26, 2019 – Sept. 27, 2019

Workshop of the 3rd HBP Curriculum Workshop Series

Why are European and national funding agencies asking you to explain how you address ethics and diversity aspects like gender in your research? Because ethics, diversity and the “gender dimension in research and innovation is an added value in terms of excellence, creativity, and business opportunities […] It leads to an in-depth understanding of […] needs, behaviours and attitudes.”

(see H2020 Online Manual)

In this 2-day workshop, scientists from different fields like neuroscience, robotics, AI and medical informatics will provide you with insights on how they consider variables such as sex, gender, age etc. Additionally, experts in ethics and diversity will introduce you to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) concepts and their practical application.

This workshop addresses researchers and students who want to…

  • explore and make best use of gender and diversity in their field of expertise
  • get to know and apply RRI and ethical standards and useful tools for “Diversity in research”
  • share experiences and gain innovative insights from cross-science perspectives


Application deadline: 19 August 2019
