RAPP - Research group for APPlied ethics

The Research group for APPlied ethics (RAPP) conduct research in ethics connected to pressing practical challenges. RAPP members contribute to transdisciplinary work in several fields including in biotechnology, medicine, and business. We are particularly interested in ethical challenges and opportunities of emerging technologies, as part of ELSA Norway and RRI clusters. Our current work includes:

  • ethics of biotechnology
  • data and information ethics
  • animal ethics and food ethics
  • climate and environmental ethics
  • corporate social responsibility
  • medical and health care ethics
  • military ethics
  • professional ethics and research ethics

Our methodology ranges from empirical ethics studies to metaethics and moral theory. We regularly contribute with teaching, dissemination and counceling in ethics at NTNU and other arenas.

Feel free to contact us concerning ethical questions in research, innovation, or other practices.
