Congratulations to our GHGA co-spokesperson and legal expert Fruzsina Molnár-Gábor who was appointed by the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, as a new member of the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies (EGE).
EGE was founded in 1991 as independent advisory body of the President of the European Commission and its legal mandate was recently renewed - resulting in the appointment of new members which represent a wide range of expertise from the fields of natural and social sciences, the humanities, philosophy, ethics and law. The newly established group will have 15 members, selected from 150 candidates, and provides independent advice on all aspects of Commission policies and legislation where ethical, societal and fundamental rights dimensions intersect with the development of science and new technologies.
Fruzsina holds a PhD in law (Dr.iur) from the University of Heidelberg and her research focuses on medical law, GDPR, as well as international and European law. At GHGA, Fruzsina is one of the leads of the ELSI Workstream and is working on addressing the legal and ethical requirements specific to Germany, creating an ethico-legal framework for secure data-sharing.
