Thinking Ahead | 11th World Congress of Bioethics – Rotterdam
From June 26th till June 29th 2012 Erasmus MC Rotterdam will host the 11th conference of the International Association of Bioethics: THINKING AHEAD, Bioethics and the Future, and the Future of Bioethics.
This conference will discuss key issues relevant for the future, including future technologies in health care, ethics and research in developing countries, synthetic biology, enhancement, life-prolonging strategies, environmental issues, the moral responsibility for future generations, food and ethics, and public health.
Thinking ahead of course requires looking back, what have we learned in the past, which lessons have we not learned, what can contemporary bioethics show us for tomorrow.
The IAB conferences are an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of moral views, practices, and insights in methodologies, where established and young bio-ethicists meet.
20 years after the IAB founding conference in Amsterdam, the IAB World Conference of Bioethics returns to the Netherlands.
