Framtidsrådet 2017 Ethics

As KI takes ethical issues in research seriously, Framtidsrådet feels that an open discussion fully devoted to ethical issues in research is appropriate for the KI community and larger public. Register to join the mingle!


Framtidsrådet has arranged Spring Mingle for the KI community about ethical issues in research. Due to recent events regarding the Macchiarini case, KI and medical research in Sweden has seen a decrease in trust among the public. 

During the event we will have three inspirational talks providing unique perspectives around medical ethics and more specifically research ethics. Following we will have an interactive mingle for all participants to continue the discussion around ethics at KI.  Fika & hors d'oeuvres will be served during the mingle. 


Registration is limited to the first 80 who sign-up! 
Make sure you have a spot!
