Hands-on course: How to establish data and AI ethics within SME ecosystems? A practical approach for iSpaces and DIHs to deliver “ethics as a service
Common ethical values and compliance with European regulations should be one of the main pillars of European data ecosystems. From our experience of monitoring more than 40 experiments on ethical risks, mainly related to data processing for innovation, we can say that there is still a long way to go. Today, SMEs typically lack the knowledge, tools and approaches to identify and understand common ethical risks. However, this is an important prerequisite for working with partners to accelerate innovation. This can start with GDPR compliance, but also includes risks such as discrimination or dual use. While SMEs are great at demonstrating positive societal impacts, they are often reluctant to transparently address the related risks, which are often the other side of the same coin.
This session launches a series of train-the-trainer events that will take place in a hybrid format over the next month, and to establish a working group on how to integrate SMEs and new iSpaces into an innovation ecosystem in terms of ethical standards and practices. We will work interactively within this workshop. Registered participants will receive training material and information that will be provided as an “ethical toolkit” within this hands-on-course.
The workshop will be three hours long and the participation is limited to 20 people.
