What we do

Eticas is an SME working on the social, ethical and legal impact of security policy, innovation and technology development, and the interaction between changing societal values, engineering possibilities and fundamental rights. Founded in 2012 as a university spin-off, Eticas analyses the contextual factors that can and should guide technological development and implementation. Our work emphasizes an understanding of the broader issues linked to trust and acceptability, legal compliance, social externalities, and ethics.
