Commission appoints new advisory group on ethics

On 30 March 2017, the European Commission has officially re-launched the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies (EGE) by appointing 15 highly qualified members. The Group will advise the Commission on all areas of policy where ethical, societal and fundamental rights issues intersect with the development of science and new technologies. The appointments follow the decision by Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the Commission, and Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, that these issues require a dedicated group of experts to help improve policymaking in the above-mentioned fields. President Juncker had emphasised that the EGE plays an integral role in furthering the Union as a community of values. The Group brings together leading experts from Europe and worldwide, from the fields of natural and social sciences and humanities, philosophy, ethics and law.
