The ELSI Board has the primary mission to advise the Management Board on questions of Ethical, legal and Societal issues at the KIC level. It also proposes a framework for evaluation of ELSI subjects in compliance with H2020 rules. Moreover, it has a raising awareness role in ELSI issues and assists EIT Health members on ELSI subjects. Operational ELSI responsibilities stay in the partners.
The ELSI Board is composed by one representative of each Co-Location Centre and InnoStars. It counts with a balanced presence of expertise in ethics, social and legal and regulatory aspects.
