Of course your company or organisation favours responsible innovation. But what does it mean? Sustainability: how does that work in practice? What do emerging technological developments have in store for you and your children? EthicSchool offers in-company training and lectures about responsible innovation and ethical technological development for professionals, students and others. EthicSchool can also implement a module on Responsible Innovation in the framework of European and other R&D projects. The website www.ethicschool.nl/english furthermore offers relevant news, background information and links.
Offer of in-company training
Could your staff benefit from training in responsible or sustainable innovation? EthicSchool can organise a tailor-made training for 6-12 professionals. Dr. Ineke Malsch and a guest lecturer* introduce the topic. Subsequently, participants gain hands-on experience in a practical exercise followed by an evaluation. Participants receive documentation helping them prepare for the training. The costs depend on the size of the group, location and duration of the training. Interested?
