Prof. Sheryl Hendriks, the keynote speaker in her exceptional lecture drew our attention to:
- competition we experience in scientific activities,
- we need evidence-based research and ethical behaviour,
- the factors having very strong influence on scientists to push us beyond the boundaries of ethics,
- the political, economic and social burden posed by our societies on ethics in science.
She emphasized that the common aim of scientists, policy makers and the societies to invite scientists, representatives of private and governmental sectors to a multidisciplinary table to find the best methods in research activity.
After resuming their impressions on the keynote lecture (e.g. inequality of minorities in science, the actual Hungarian example of the politicized science), the speakers were:
Prof. Nath emphasized global responsibility in the ethics and the urgent need of globally regulated methodology in special fields of science.
Prof. Zhenzhen described examples when aims and methodology could be accepted at local level, but not at global level.
Prof. Abdool Karim urged the initiation of more active conversation between science and community, emphasized the importance of global solidarity.
Prof. Asakawa by giving her personal experiences on disabilities, presented the right of disabled people to real word accessibility.
Prof. Saliba summed up the importance of personal and institutional conduct in the development of ethical behaviour. He urged the establishment of scientific collaborations to fight against the increased prices in science.
