Center for Values Discussion Forum: Ethics and the Military Funding of Research
Feb 8 7:30 pm,
GR 2.530

The military has historically been a big source of funding for research in science and engineering. What ethical issues arise as University researchers decide whether to accept funds from the military and from defense contractors? How should researchers make responsible decisions about funding? What personal limitations might there be on such funding? Join our panelists in discussion of the realities of military funding, their personal worries and decisions, and the larger ethical and political issues. Our panelists are Dr. Emily Tobey, Associate Provost and Nelle C. Johnston Chair, Dr. Nicholas Gans, Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Sciences, Dr. Andrew Blanchard, Vice Provost and Dr. Marge Zielke, Arts & Technology. Dr. Matthew J. Brown will moderate the discussion between the panelists and the audience.
