The É-LABO research team is developing a living laboratory (É-LABO) to conceptualize, operationalize, and enact experimental models of participatory ethics in research methodologies, clinical ethics interventions, and health ethics education.

This project aims to 1) create and develop one of the first living lab-type ethics laboratories, 2) implement the living ethics approach in a series of pilot projects involving patients and health professionals, and 3) critically evaluate this experience and develop a strategy for deployment in various settings. 

This project will generate many opportunities for collaboration in a niche of scientific expertise and innovation.
