Established in 2007 at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly), San Luis Obispo, the Ethics + Emerging Sciences Group is a non-partisan organization focused on risk, ethical, and social concerns related to new sciences and technologies.

As a research and educational group, we are involved with ethics and risk assessment, course development, publishing projects, media outreach, public lectures, and other activities to engage policymakers, business, academia, as well as the broader public on key issues in science and society.
