About the Ethics Programme

The Ethics Programme (2002-2011) is an interdisciplinary and cross-faculty research programme, and one of the University of Oslo's prioritised research areas. Its overriding aim is to promote and support ethics research and normative reflection at the University of Oslo.

The Ethics Programme runs an interdisciplinary Research School, as well as providing stimulation funds for ethics research and teaching at the University. The Ethics Programme also coordinates a series of national research courses through the Norwegian Ethics Network, runs the site www.etikk.no, hosts the fortnightly Ethics Seminar at the University of Oslo, and the annual Oslo Lecture in Moral Philosophy.

The Ethics Programme research school currently has 18 doctoral students as members, 11 of which are fully funded by the Ethics Programme.
