‘Design Thinking Approach to Ethical (Responsible) Technological Innovation’

The School of Business and Management of UCLan Cyprus organises the seminar: ‘Design Thinking Approach to Ethical (Responsible) Technological Innovation’, on Wednesday, 12 February, 14:00-15:00, in Room: CY114. In this seminar, Dr Ganesh Nathan will talk about the growing interest and importance for responsible research and innovation (RRI) among academic scholars and policy makers, especially, in relation to emerging technologies. Although the design thinking approach has been around since 1960s, there is renewed interest in this approach to innovation. However, there is a gap in bridging design thinking approach to RRI. This lecture aims to show that design thinking approach is potentially conducive to ethical (responsible) technological innovation especially within emerging and converging technologies, due to its emphasis on human-centred design and other core attributes such as empathy although it poses many challenges to implement.
