Online Workshop: Disruptive Technologies in the Public Administration Sector

How can disruptive technologies be adapted in an ethically sound way? The upcoming workshop on “Disruptive Technologies in the Public Administration Sector: Legal Challenges” places an emphasis on fundamental rights implications and the EU draft on AI Regulation. The workshop will encourage a public discussion among different stakeholders to promote a better understanding of the common legal challenges public administrators face.

Technological advancement is steadily accelerating. “Disruptive Technologies” such as AI, Big Data or Robotics not only offer a wide range of opportunities, but might also pose unprecedented problems and challenges.

To enable an ethically sound adaption of such Disruptive Technologies, the H2020 Project “ETAPAS” (Ethical Technology Adoption in Public Administration Services) investigates the implementation of Disruptive Technologies in the Public Administration sector. Its aim is to develop tools supporting public administration in the assessment and management of the ethical, social and legal challenges of Disruptive Technologies.

The upcoming workshop on “Disruptive Technologies in the Public Administration Sector: Legal Challenges” places an emphasis on fundamental rights implications and the EU draft on AI Regulation. The workshop will encourage a public discussion among different stakeholders to promote a better understanding of the common legal challenges public administrators face.

The online workshop is organised by the ETAPAS project consortium at the University of Graz.
