“I think an ELSI expert is often seen as a patch for projects from the natural sciences. You can ask this ELSI expert anything that has to be solved in a certain way, it has to be a yes or no answer, then it’s done and you never have to talk about it again.”
This episode of the BBMRI-ERIC podcast joins the ELSI (ethical, legal, societal issues/implications) team from across Europe when they met in person for the first time since the pandemic.
You hear from Michaela Th. Mayrhofer, Melanie Goisauf, Kaya Akyuz, Monica Cano Abadia, Irene Schlünder, Ilaria Colussi, Ulrike Felt, Anna Clareborn, Olga Tzortzatou, Lisa-Maria Ferent, Isabelle Budin Ljøsne and Gillian Martin.
Over two intense days in Vienna, the team shared findings and identified priorities for the next year.
