Gemensam agenda för livslångt lärande

Ledande personer från de deltagande universiteten i NeurotechEU, the European University of Brain and Technology, samlades nyligen för ett fysiskt möte i Bonn. Under mötet, som var det första sedan lanseringen, diskuterade rektorer och alliansens styrelse planer för utvidgning av alliansen och hur samarbetet kan utvecklas.

NeurotechEU, även känt som the European University of Brain and Technology, är en av 41 europeiska universitetsallianser som finansieras av EU. NeurotechEU bildades för att stärka den europeiska konkurrenskraften inom neurovetenskap, samt för att skapa beredskap inför framtida samhälleliga utmaningar som är kopplat till neurotvetenskap, tex olika neurorelaterade sjukdomar.

NeurotechEU koordineras av Radboud University i Nijmegen (Nederländerna); och hittills består alliansen av: University of Bonn, University of Oxford (UK), Karolinska Institutet (Sverige), Miguel Hernández University of Elche (Spanien), Bogazici University (Turkiet), Iuliu Hațieganu University of Medicine and Pharmacy (Rumänien) och University of Debrecen (Ungern).

Under konferensen presenterades Georgia Tech-Lorraines Georgia Institute of Technologys internationella campus som ny allianspartner.

Talare från den tyska rektorskonferensen (HRK) och EU-kommissionen höll en workshop som främst ägnades åt att utveckla kursutbud för NeurotechEU Life-Long Learning Center, en central struktur inom alliansen. Den andra dagen handlade diskussionen om en eventuell etablering av gemensam juridisk person och framtida organisatorisk struktur för NeurotechEU.

Mötet avslutades med att universitetsledningen undertecknade en sjupunktsförklaring som beskriver alliansens kärnvärden och mål.

Modern day “neurohackers” are radically self-experimenting, attempting genomic modification with CRISPR-Cas9 constructs and electrode insertion into their cortex amongst a host of other things. Institutions wanting to avoid the risks bought on by these procedures, generally avoid involvement with self-experimenting research. 

But what is the ethical thing to do? Should researchers be allowed or encouraged to self-experiment? Should institutions support or hinder them? Where do you think that this process of self-experimentation could take us? 

This presentation by Dr Matt Lennon and Professor Zoltan Molnar of the University of Oxford, will explore the history, future and ethics of self-experimentation. It will explore notable examples of self-experimenters including Isaac Newton, Angelo Ruffini and Oliver Sacks and how a number of these pivotal experiments created paradigm shifts in neuroscience. The presentation will open up a forum for all participants to be involved asking key ethical questions around what should and should not be allowed in self-experimentation research.
