Our Vision

Innovation is never neutral but comes with a number of opportunities and risks. In order to achieve long-term economic, social and ecological added value, every innovation should undergo ethical scrutiny as early as possible. Only by doing so, can present-day innovations create real progress and lead to a future world that is both more sustainable and fair. In this way, profound ethical reflection will inspire innovation instead of stifling it.

How we work

We provide critical guidance. We debate interactively. We act transparently. Transparency facilitates trustworthy collaborations, both internally and externally. In a world that is characterized by fast changes, we approach ethical ambivalences in an agile and differentiated way. Developing practical solutions to the ethical challenges of innovation and digitization requires creativity, diversity and the constant monitoring of the newest innovative developments.
