What does this program cover?
Responsibility has become a key concern in current discussions around governance, economic growth, sustainable development, and social progress – captured, for example, by the frameworks of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). In an environment of increasing economic and political uncertainty, RESET takes serious challenges such as:
- How can we anticipate and govern the social, ethical, or environmental impacts of scientific and technological change?
- What is sustainable, reflexive, or democratic innovation?
- Which inter- or transdisciplinary forms of knowledge production enable responsibility?
- How do notions of responsibility differ across regulatory, cultural, and policy contexts?
- How should expert knowledge and technical possibilities shape democracies, markets and societies?
- Conversely, how can we democratize expertise and technology development?
