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.
