Dual Use of Concern and Misuse

About Dual Use

Brain research, as every emerging science and technology, can be used for socially beneficial as well as concerning aims. To address this challenge, the Ethics and Society team of the Human Brain Project has developed a concept of dual use of concern focusing on problematic uses of brain research for political, security, intelligence, military, and other purposes. This approach goes beyond traditional understanding of dual use as a civilian-military dichotomy and considers a broader range of socially concerning uses. This tool will help you identify and address potentially concerning uses, by means of an ethics and societal approach including anticipation, reflection, engagement, and action.
