Responsible Innovation, 2018-2019

The minor Responsible Innovation is a unique collaboration between Leiden University, Delft University of Technology and Erasmus University Rotterdam. The programme offers in-depth insight into how responsible innovation can be accomplished and promoted. During this minor you will be introduced to the technical, managerial and socio-economic principles that govern innovation, and discuss ethical and other conditions for innovating responsibly. You will learn how responsible innovation can be defined and analysed; how it can be done and managed at the level of a project team, of a company and of an entire economic system; and how responsible innovation can be promoted and irresponsible innovation avoided.
In this minor, we combine the unique knowledge and skills of TU Delft, Leiden and Erasmus Rotterdam. The students and teachers come from the different universities, and bring with them their own focus, expertise and perspectives.
