Adapting and using SIENNA results

SIENNA will actively contribute to the development of new approaches to address the different ethical and legal issues of emerging technology. This includes a structured effort to generalise and adapt results to other areas.

SIENNA will:

  • Adapt and extend the scope of SIENNA ethical and legal analysis to other emerging technologies.
  • Develop step-by-step guidance on how to move from ethical analysis to codes and operational guidelines.
  • Develop methodology for reconciling citizens and scientists' different views and interests.
  • Develop a sustainability plan to ensure buy-in from stakeholders and use of SIENNA results after the project ends.
