Social implications of LifeTime technologies (LIFETIME)

The project “Social implications of LifeTime technologies” has been conducted between January and April 2020 by K&I on behalf of the EC-funded “LifeTime” initiative. LifeTime was aimed at developing a Roadmap favouring the development, integration and application of the technologies related to three main areas, i.e., single-cell biology, application of artificial intelligence to single-cell analysis and the development of organoids. In this context, the project was focused on collecting information about expectations surrounding the LifeTime technologies, as well as their social implications, addressing ethical, organisational, cultural, and policy issues to be considered in the development of a Roadmap. To this aim, a literature review and a stakeholder and expert consultation have been conducted.
