The European Business Ethics Network Conference

The German Network for Business Ethics (DNWE) [3] recently organized the annual conference for its European Organisation: The European Business Ethics Network - EBEN [4]. The conference took place in Berlin from the 12th to the 14th of June 2014, and was located in the ESTM European School of Management and Technology [5].

The EBEN annual conference brought together academics from almost all European countries and from beyond, in order to discuss topics related to economy and business ethics from a European perspective:

"The economy has been the central driving force in the successful legal and economic EU integration process. What role should companies and other players take in further strengthening the cultural, social and economic integration process - if this is really desirable? What is Europe's part in the creation of global standards in business and culture? Does a "Cultural Europe" already exist, one that influences approaches and action of European stakeholders on the world stage more than they are aware?
The question of unity and historically influenced diversity, natural in politics, has not yet been integrated in a total concept in the field of business ethics. Many questions are being discussed with no regard to the European dimension, focusing either only on the regional and national economy or on global economic relations

One of the tracks of the conference was Responsible Innovation, so Fondazione Giannino Bassetti participated in the conference by sending two of its collaborators: Alessandro Blasimme and Virginia Sanchini. They presented a paper entitled "Responsible Innovation: the translational turn and the ethics of clinical risk". Focusing on the new translational scenario of biomedicine and analysing how the concept of clinical risk changes within it, the paper aimed at probing the capacity of traditional bioethics as a regulatory tool for the governance of translational medicine. The authors proposed a combined approach in which bioethics integrates some key concepts of responsible innovation.
