First e-meetings with Ethical and Scientific Advisory Boards

Gert Helgesson, Professor of Medical Ethics at Karolinska Institutet.

NEAR has had the first meetings with its Ethical and Scientific Advisory Boards.

At the ethical advisory board meeting, a future direction of NEAR as an ethically more aware actor was discussed. An actor that pulls knowledge from different fields together and is able to better describe the quality of health in the elderly.

The scientific advisors proposed new possible international forums where NEAR could help fill knowledge gaps. The meeting also discussed the shifting priorities in the new research landscape that has formed. Not least the increasing number of public-private partnerships that are proposed, and the discussion regarding the right to data for different partners.
