ETHICS, SCIENCE AND SOCIETY is an international project of academic

research, scientific dissemination, and social and political responsibility,

sponsored by the Luso-American Development Foundation. Its main

objective is to stress the importance of this triumvirate approach – ethics,

science, society – to address some of the current major challenges facing

humanity. The balance we achieve today between these three concepts

strongly defines our present and will have a decisive impact upon our

common future: scientific progress shapes our modern societies which,

from an ethical perspective, should always be acknowledged as being the

ultimate goal for science and one which, by contributing to a common good,

corroborates its ethical dimension.


This requires us to enhance the dialogue between scientists and ethicists,

under a mutual recognition that both work towards a common good.

It is indeed the outcome of this joint endeavour, and one in which citizen

participation should be encouraged, which should determine public policies

that truly foster both scientific progress and social development.
