Mission, scope and objectives

The Task Force Ethics & Values supports our Members in addressing the ethical challenges resulting from the scientific and technological developments in the 21st century and provides guidance on how to optimise their contribution to contributing to finding solutions to UN SDG. It will realise the following objectives:

  1. translate the insights from S&T for the 21st century into concrete recommendations for our Members;
  2. address Responsible Research, Education and Innovation (RRE&I) and the UN SDG and constructively engage with policy makers and other stakeholders on these topics;
  3. collaborate closely with relevant academic and societal players such as the European Commission, the learning societies, other university associations and the broader research communities on these topics;
  4. provide pro-active agenda-setting and advocacy in national, European and international fora by delivering informed, relevant and timely interventions such as papers;
  5. gather resources, mechanisms and tools on RRE&I and make these accessible through a workshop and training and within our ‘Knowledge Base’;
  6. promote talent - i.e. researchers, teachers, support staff and leaders - through sharing best practice and organising events and training;
  7. collect, analyse and disseminate practices concerning the contribution of our Members to the UN SDGs.
