Summer School on “The Regulation of Robotics & AI in Europe: Legal, Ethical and Economic Implications”
July 1 - July 6
The Summer School will provide participants with an advanced understanding of the European framework within which robotic and AI technologies are to be developed, marketed and used.
Such technologies represent a novel kind of applications that has to be fitted within a pre-existing framework of legal standards, and socio-ethical beliefs and principles. Robots developed by research laboratories and industries across Europe need to comply with existing regulation, be respectful of – and promote – existing rights as recognized by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (CFR), abide a responsible research and innovation approach and take into account existing – social – needs and desires. It is therefore essential, both for engineers designing such applications and for lawyers and social scientists seeking to acquire relevant professional skills to be able to counsel roboticists and robotic enterprises, to acquire an exact understanding of all the different profiles and of interdisciplinary interactions.
