About
Established in 1976, the Ethics Center’s mission is to educate students as responsible professionals, to reflect on the wider implications of scientific progress, and to contribute to the shaping of technology in accordance with fundamental human values. Its research program focuses on ethics in the life sciences and ethical and societal issues of emerging technologies, with a particular focus on philosophical and ethical aspects of neuroscience. The Ethics Center is committed to multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional research, to projects that combine empirical investigation with conceptual analysis, and to projects that introduce and propagate innovations in teaching. Furthermore, the Ethics Center Library houses a unique collection of ethics codes from all over the world and a large collection of ethics education materials.
