Ethical IT

2. June, 2020

Hub IT will activate the constructive interactions between ICT developers, SSH researchers, and other stakeholders (e.g. NGOs, citizens, and users)  leading to a responsible approach to research and innovation through the uptake of SSH expertise and RRI actions.

Information- and communication technology (ICT) has already had a huge impact on mankind and will continue to affect us, even more, looking forward. There is, therefore, a need to include an even wider selection of stakeholders and knowledge in the future development of ICT to ensure the development is socially desirable and acceptable.
