Launch PEPT Platform for Ethics and Politics of Technology


Smart cities, robotics, artificial intelligence, medical technologies, the energy transition, sustainable technologies and surveillance capitalism: new technologies affect every part of society and our daily lives, raising new ethical and political questions. The Platform for the Ethics and Politics of Technology (PEPT) aims to address these questions by strengthening research in the ethics, politics and governance of technology. It brings together existing research projects but also initiates new projects and collaborations on the ethics and politics of technology.
