Through the EURA Young Scholars Prize, once every year PhD students and young researchers are invited to submit their papers on any of the subject areas covered by the Centre of Excellence. The best paper will be presented at a special session of the EURA annual Conference.

This year, the Conference will focus on Human Robot Interaction, and will discuss the legal, social, ethical and philosophical issues of Human-Robot interaction, focusing, in particular, on whether deceitful technologies – designed to give the appearance of being alive, conscious, capable of proving emotions and establishing bonds – are admissible or, to the contrary, whether some uses and applications ought to be prohibited, also in the light of the fundamental principles of human dignity and freedom of self-determination, as emerging from the European Charter of Fundamental Rights.
