On 10-11 November 2017, Dr. Philip J. Nickel and Dr. Lily Frank presented their paper, “Is electronic coaching (softly) paternalistic?” at the annual conference of the Dutch Research School of Philosophy (OZSW).  The paper explores whether electronic coaching can be considered paternalistic in a way that raises serious ethical problems.

At the same conference, together with Anthonie Meijers and Iris Loosman, Philip Nickel and Lily Frank have also presented a poster on part of the NWO-MVI project. The poster is titled “Rethinking trust and consent in mobile behavior change support systems” and can be found under the “News” header on the homepage.

On 16 October 2017, Dr. Philip J. Nickel gave an invited talk entitled “The epistemic interests of data donors, beyond consent” at the workshop “The Ethics of Data Donation: Opportunities and Challenges,” hosted by the Oxford Internet Institute.  The paper argues that there are some basic uncertainties involved in biomedical data donation, and that these can create distrust in potential donors unless there are clear data governance principles.

On Monday the 25th of September the valorisation panel and research team met and kicked-off the program. This meeting was followed by the research meet ‘Fitter, happier, more productive? The Science and Technology of Behavior Change’, organized by the Center for Humans & Technology.
