1st International Conference Ethics of Engineering Life

The engineering of molecular and cellular systems for clinical applications capitalises on the unique competences achieved worldwide within the past 10 years. While in the long run such systems engineering approaches will help to cure pertinent diseases, methods to modify, edit, correct and/or complement the genome of patients can be also used to improve a person’s lifestyle, or be even misused in various ways. To address the ethical aspects of such attempts towards engineering life, the 1st International Conference Ethics of Engineering Life invites stakeholders from the scientific, medical, ethical, political, cultural and religious world across generations into a collaborative discourse about the ethical challenges systems engineering approaches will be facing in the future.

Invited speakers will present the latest research and moral challenges related to engineering life and participate in panel discussions with other speakers and stakeholders. We particularly invite the young generation of students to participate and define the existing and future global challenges in engineering life.

JOIN US and help create a framework for true ethical discourse about engineering life to take place!
