dc.description.abstract This paper looks at the significance of ICTs for the elderly population of Europe. It pays particular attention to some of the EU’s ICT initiatives and discusses potential ethical issues that may arise within the ICTs. The paper argues that identifying potential ethical problems in ICTs targeted at the elderly is likely to make a fundamental difference to the lives of the elderly population. This is because identifying the potential ethical problems, especially at an earlier stage, helps developers, the users as well as carers and families to remedy potential problems as the ICTs are used. Lastly the paper discusses work that the Ethical Issues of Emerging ICT Applications (ETICA) project is undertaking in its mandate to identify future emerging technologies and their subsequent ethical issues. en
