IEET Consults for Japanese Neurotech Consortium




February 02, 2012

In January, IEET Executive Director J. Hughes and IEET Fellow Wendell Wallach met with representatives of the Japanese Consortium on Applied Neuroscience (Japanese, English). They visited Trinity College as part of a national tour to meet with American neuroethicists.

The Japanese neurotechnology industry is just beginning to organize along the lines of the Neurotechnology Industry Organization in the United States, but with a much stronger focus on the inclusion of neuroethics as part of their mandate.  We spoke to the group about the lessons learned about neurotechnology regulation thus far in the United States, the desirability of more harmonization of drug and device clinical trials and regulations within the OECD countries, and the particular emphases of our technoprogressive take on neurotechnology. The slides from our talk are available here.
