On February 25th and 26th, the Pontifical Academy for Life organized a workshop on Roboethics: Humans, Machines and Health. The goal of the Workshop was to provide updates on the characteristics of the technologies in the field of robotics. One of the primary goals was to shape and identify the questions rising in the field from the anthropological and ethical point of view through those who work on the ground. Another goal was to propose some ethical criteria and possibly some recommendations in order to reintroduce a global dimension of the theme.

At the workshop, UNESCO Chair Director, Prof. Alberto Garcia had the chance to meet Pope Francis. In their meeting, he presented the Chair and spoke about the that the Chair has carried out through these years in disseminating principles of Human Rights and Bioethics. Through a constantly working towards organizing workshops, national and international conferences, UNESCO Chair in Bioethics and Human Rights is committed to continuing the establishment of forums of discussion on Multiculturalism and Interreligious dialogue, Neurobioethics, and Human Rights.
