Ethics in Innovation – Munich, Germany

World Forum for Ethics in Business

The World Forum for Ethics in Business and the Max-Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition are coming together for a series of conferences on ‘Ethics in Innovation.’ The first is June 26–27, 2017, at the German Patent and Trade Mark Office. This conference series is also supported by the Peter Löscher Chair for Business Ethics, Technical University of Munich (TUM), the European Patent Office and the German Patent and Trade Mark Office.

the Munich Conference Series on Ethics in Innovations seeks to bring together experts and practitioners from a variety of disciplines, and from diverse philosophical and cultural backgrounds, to one platform to exchange ideas, practices, practical experiences and current academic research pertaining to ‘ethics’, ‘innovation’ and their interface in the 21st century global village. The conference series is envisaged as one that will continue for four consecutive years, each year taking up issues of ethics and innovation from a multi-disciplinary perspective, with a particular focus on (i) both eastern and western philosophy, culture/religion and legal history, and (ii) a specific technological focus area. In the first year, the focus is on the information and communication technologies (ICT) and will invite experts from India and Europe to discuss the underlying ethical issues from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

A complementary event is the World Youth Forum, Understanding and Promoting Ethics in Innovation in the 21st Century Global Village, June 23-25, 2017.

The WYF creates an open platform for university students (Undergraduate, Masters, Ph.D.) and young professionals from across the globe to voice their message to the world’s top decision makers in today’s global environment, and to the world community at large.
