5th 8TU-4TU International Conference: Dutch and Chinese Approaches in the Ethics of Technology

From the 3th till the 5th of July, the 4TU Centre for Ethics and Technology will host a delegation of Chinese partners at the University of Twente. The collaboration between the Dutch and Chinese centres for Ethics and Technology has started in 2010. Since, 4 conferences have taken place in which the two parties discuss future collaborations, projects, and exchanges. The 4TU Ethics Centre is very enthusiastic to be collaborating with ethicists of technology from the eight Chinese Universities united under the 8TU.Ethics flag.

The event is closed for the public. However, we invite those interested to join us for four talks on Monday afternoon.
