On July 2009, UNESCO signed an agreement to establish a UNESCO Chair in Bioethics and Human Rights with the Università Europea di Roma and Ateneo Pontificio Regina Apostolorum. The two universities, in cooperation with UNESCO, established this UNESCO Chair at the Bioethics and Human Rights Institute. The UNESCO Chair offers a university framework of reflection and study, providing information and fostering the application of bioethical principles in science, medicine and new technologies based on the UNESCO Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights.
The UNESCO Chair operates in the Faculty of Bioethics of Ateneo Pontificio Regina Apostolorum. The main research activities of the Chair are related to bioethical issues of emerging technologies (neuroscience, nanotechnologies) and in the multicultural and multi-religious dialogue in bioethical issues.
The Chair seeks to create a forum of diverse bioethics thought leaders. Collaborating in a spirit of respect and friendship, our mission consists of deliver a common framework to guide the application of bioethical principles in the light of the UNESCO Declaration. In this manner, the Chair intends to inform and enlighten ethical, legal and public opinions, decisions and actions relative to medicine, life sciences, and human rights and responsibilities.
