SCALINGS coordinator Sebastian Pfotenhauer participated in a keynote panel on “Building Responsible Innovation: Frameworks and Best-Practices in the Private Sector” at the OECD Workshop “Minding Neurotechnology: Delivering Responsible Innovation for Health and Well-Being” in Shanghai, China.

Panellists discussed the modes through which ethics and social responsibility can make a positive impact on neurotechnology and related technologies such as robotics and AI. A mixed group of innovators, researchers, and other experts discuss how forms of upstream responsibility can contribute to downstream profitability and health impact. How do frameworks such as Co-Creation, Corporate Social Responsibility, Socially Responsible Investing, Responsible Research and Innovation and Ethics by Design provide resources to translate research into products?
