Ethics and Technologies Project was initiated by the UCU Lviv Business School (LvBS) to study the impact of technology on society and people and popularize the ethical aspects of technological development. The project is aimed at setting up a platform for communication between technology business, society, scientific and research institutions
The project is implemented with the support of Charity Fund

WHAT WE DO
RESEARCH ON ETHICAL CHALLENGES OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
The project features a research aimed at identifying the potential ethical implications of the implementation and use of new technologies, as well as the level of understanding of risks by business, science, government agencies and specialists involved in the research and development of technological products
Considering the uniqueness of the UCU Lviv Business School which runs business programs at the intersection of business, technology, humanities and Christian spirituality, the project is a space for interdisciplinary discussions about the ethical perspectives of developing and using emerging technologies. We strive to combine the high academic standards of UCU with the expectations of the business environment. We expect the research findings to open up new ethical prospects for the future, and enable technology business to develop and innovate with respect to human dignity and mission.
We believe that the development of new technologies that would serve the good of human is impossible without clear ethical guidelines. In turn, these guidelines should be based on deep research of both technology and humanities, such as sociology, anthropology, psychology, and philosophy. By integrating the professionals working at the crossroads of different industries into the project, we seek to provide society and business with the integral vision of the role of technology in the realization of a human purpose.
The project aims at delivering qualitative and quantitative research on the impact of technology on human life and the state of the environment. We strive to promote a dialogue between business, public, academic and educational institutions, and open up together new perspectives on the use of innovative technologies with respect to human dignity. Our plans include research, organizing discussions, regular reviews of technological news, developing and implementing an educational program on ethics of technologies.
