On 7 November 2019, the SHERPA project kicked off the advocacy mandate with a private lunch for policymakers. The lunch was organised by the European Business Summits as a part of the Think Digital conference at the Egmont Palace in Brussels, Belgium.
Laurence Brooks, Professor of Technology and Social Responsibility at De Montford University, and Renate Klar, Communications Specialist at EUREC (European Network of Research Ethics Committees) had the chance to present the project in front of Members of the European Parliament, representatives from the European Commission, permanent representation of Estonia to the EU and more. This first event between policymakers and the SHERPA project has set in motion the advocacy mandate, working together to create new guidelines for the development of ethical Artificial Intelligence and other emerging technologies.
