Both parties have a strong interest in the ethical, legal and social aspects of new and emerging technologies. 3TU.Ethics is especially strong in the ethics of technology, while CIGA pays special attention to law and technology. The agreement is designed to facilitate and promote exchanges in the fields of teaching and research in common areas of interest, such as nanotechnology.
Collaboration will include the exchange of information regarding teaching and research in the relevant fields, as well as seminars, meetings, and joint research projects. Particular attention will be paid to the implementation of joint programs in the framework of international cooperation and in the process of internationalization of the teaching and training programs.
One of the first concrete events within this collaboration already took place on March 25th, when CIGA staff member Mariassunta Piccinni gave a talk in Delft about Neurotechnologies, personal identity and health.
