Lecture on “Ethics and Digital Health”

On the 17 June, Carina Dantas, SHINE’s CEO, gave a lecture on “Ethics and Digital Health” to the students of the Universidade do Porto, based on the classical philosophical concept of ethics as the striving for the best lifestyle, both in private and in public.

We discussed from #SHAFE and NET4Age-Friendly to the ethical excellence in the AAL Programme and the need of an Ethics framework for the ICT profession;
Approached concepts such as health and wellbeing, co-creation, integration of care and empathic design;
Projects such as #STEP_UP#BIG#DESIRE#SDD and the conclusions of the study on the impact of the COVID19 in European CSOs we delivered to the Diversity Europe Group – EESC (European Economic and Social Committee);
And policy work such as the #euageingand the Council conclusions on mainstreaming ageing in all policies by the #EU2021PT

The search for ethical excellence is long, multidisciplinary and an endless, but super interesting task!
