On the 21st of November TU Dublin welcomed the Ethics4EU partners and stakeholders to the launch event for the project.
After the welcoming from Prof Michael Devereux (TU Dublin), Dympna O’Sullivan (TU Dublin) gave an overview of the project to the attendees clarifying the objectives and introducing the expected outcomes of Ethics4EU.
Afterwards, the stakeholders were engaged in a Round Table Activity in which they were asked to identify Digital Ethics issues relevant to their own industry. Facilitators lead discussions on 3 questions:
- What ethical concerns exist in their digital projects and enterprises?
- What ethical questions do developers need to ask themselves when developing software technology?
- What types of skills are needed by graduates in relation to digital ethics?
In the end a panel responded to round table activities and questions from stakeholders.
