The Fondazione Giannino Bassetti’s new publication, Conversations on Innovation, Power and Responsibility highlights approaches to responsibility in innovation taken by leading practitioners in disruptive fields.
Our intent is to highlight approaches that can be replicated, and to develop language that can allow practitioners in different fields to communicate more effectively about responsible innovation. By focusing on what are widely perceived to be some of the most disruptive fields of innovation, including biology and medicine, computers and robotics, design, and nanotechnology, we have also identified a few areas where the concept of responsible innovation may be most needed.
