Naturalness in Human Cognitive Enhancement (HCENAT)

In September 2014, we started the project Naturalness in Human Cognitive Enhancement (HCENAT). The project aims at building up a new international research partnership in the field of Human Cognitive Enhancement (HCE) and to provide clear and accessible HCE-related analysis, guidelines and directions for policymakers, stakeholders, HCE engineers and consumers. Its goal is to create a philosophically grounded, open and transparent framework for description, assessment and forecast of acceptability of HCE systems in public space and by society, as well as for HCE governance issues. The project will be finished in April 2017.

Within this project, we tightly cooperate with Charles University in Prague, 1st Faculty of Medicine, National Institute of Mental Health (earlier Prague Psychiatric Center), The Department of Cybernetics at University of West Bohemia and two Norwegian partners: University College of Gjøvik, Faculty of Health, Care and Nursing and Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, Work Research Institute.

This project (7F14236) is supported by the Czech-Norwegian Research Programme (CZ09).
