"Responsible research only happens if science and ethical analysis grow together"

  • English

The group approaches sensitive ELSI issues with an integrated approach trying to deconstruct the problem into different components, analyses it and approaches possible actions course based on empirical evidence. Science happens and impacts society and the study of critical interaction between the planned research and stakeholders is one of the focuses of our approach. We work to develop solutions for effective and transparent data and bio-specimen sharing. International exchange is a main prerequisite of ELSI Studies. Research happens in an international context and only deep interactions with other research centers can meaningfully inform research done in house.Therefore, we encourage international fellowships based on joint research projects.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
