8th Science and Technology congress 2006 "Ethics in Science and Technology"
Ethical considerations underpin many of the major global issues facing the international community today – climate change, avian influenza and intellectual property rights, to name a few. Technological innovations have progressed at such a rapid pace that public debate on ethical issues has had trouble keeping up.
