During the first national ELSA Labs conference organized by the Dutch AI Coalition (NL AIC), the publication 'Ethics and AI - Seven methods in theory and practice’ (in Dutch) was presented. This publication describes seven methods for the ethical application of AI. The publication not only focuses on the theory and content of the methods, but also describes how they work out in practice. TAISIG core team member Merel Noorman is part of the NL AIC's Human-centered AI working group and wrote the chapter on data governance clinics.

The data governance clinics approach was developed by an interdisciplinary team of researchers at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society (TILT). This approach focuses on establishing governance structures around data-driven innovative projects in the public domain. The approach starts from practice and steers towards embedding continuous ethical reflection as part of governance practices that go beyond compliance and take public interests in the broader context as a starting point.
