At the initiative of Franck Meijboom and Marcus Düwell, both ethics researchers at Utrecht University, LERU ethics’ scientists have produced a statement and annex on the ‘Agenda for Ethics’ Research in H2020’, elaborating on the LERU advice paper ‘Social Sciences and Humanities: essential fields for European research and in Horizon 2020’, published in June 2012. In the paper, ethics is presented as an essential discipline to deal with the normative dimensions of the themes and topics mentioned in Horizon 2020. The claim that ethics is essential to foster responsible research and innovation is further elaborated in this statement and ideas are presented on how this can be operationalized.
