A big thank you to everyone who was involved in organising and participating in the first Accountability & Ethics in a Digital Ecosystem (ACCEDE) CWG. The ACCEDE group exists to develop research partnerships, engage stakeholders and develop research themes and questions for this challenge. The workshop included SPRITE+ Members and Project Partners from academia and professional practice. We had a good mix of academics and practitioners on the day and the workshop has without doubt contributed to laying the groundwork for taking this SPRITE+ challenge forward.
Dr Jonathan Foster, Principal Investigator
Over 40 challenge areas were discussed, and combined into several emerging themes, from how time and space contexts relate to what is ethically permissible, to ethics and law, to how local, national, and global ethical understandings may compete.
The ACCEDE group is led by Dr Jonathan Foster (University of Sheffield) and Dr Julie Gore (University of Bath).
