February 28, 2014 – The RoboLaw Project

On 28 February 2014 at 14.00 at the Politecnico of Milan Tech and Law Center is pleased to host  Andrea Bonarini, Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione, Politecnico of Milan, and the RoboLaw team, represented by Erica Palmerini, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Andrea Bertolini, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and Pericle Salvini, Università di Pisa, for the presentation of

“The RoboLaw Project”

The main objective of the RoboLaw project is to investigate the ways in which emerging technologies in the field of (bio-) robotics (e.g. bionics, neural interfaces and nanotechnologies) have a bearing on the content, meaning and setting of the law. The most important outcome of the RoboLaw project will consist of some “Guidelines on Regulating Robotics”, containing regulatory suggestions for the European Commission, in order to establish of a solid framework of ‘robolaw’ in Europe.

The purpose of this workshop is to present the project and to discuss legal and societal aspects of robotics.  The workshop will be moderated by  Giuseppe Vaciago and Francesca Bosco.

The slides presented are available here and here.
