Time: November 2021- 2023
Paid: Yes. This is limited to hours spent on the five meetings envisioned and preparation for the meetings. Gry is only taking these limited fees as she does not provide free services to a company.
Notes: To accept the role was considered very carefully over a longer period of time. In the end, the primary reason to join was to gain inside knowledge and understanding of the power dynamics that shape global responses and use of emerging technologies in the context of health and healthcare. The decision was based on the experience of the Covid19 pandemic global power dynamics.
The role was accepted based on conditions that ensure complete expert independence and the power to be openly critical. Nothing in the contract prevents Gry from publishing or publicly discussing topics that come up in consultation with Bayer, so long as confidential information is not revealed.
The scope of the bio ethics council is in the contract described to:
“… • challenge Bayer to ensure human bioethics is an integral part of the R&D contributions
• challenge Bayer’s policies in respect to human bioethics and provides input on strategic shifts
• evaluate Bayer’s progress towards the implementation of its bioethics strategies and goals
• consult on main drivers behind contemporary bioethics topics (i.e. technological advancement and social change)…“
Gry works as an independent scholar and only accepts tasks where she has academic freedom as well as the conditions available to challenge and be critical.
She has never and does not advice companies on communications and public relations.
She has never and does not accept funding from GAFAM.
