The DIANA project was invited – together with other AAL projects – to participate in testing the AAL Guidelines for ethics, data privacy and security. Ethics and Privacy issues are fundamental not only to demonstrate a high quality of R&D procedures in human – technology interactions, but also to guarantee that the findings and output of a project are sound, scalable, sellable and suitable for the market.
Ethical tools are tested with DIANA project to understand, with the help of some external experts, the viability and effectiveness of the suggested approach.
As a first step, an Ethical Board was installed within the project consortium in order to regularly discuss ethical topics that arise during the project.
Additionally, an Ethics workshop session is planned with multiple project partners (developers, technicians, sociologists, nurses, users) to discuss possible needs, problems and expectations arising with the use of a solution like DIANA.
