by

Users, consumers or citizens? The role of users in shaping technology (Part 1)

What role can users/consumers play in shaping technology? How does this reflect in terms of the debates and dilemmas of innovation in contemporary society?

The aim of the course ‘Innovation: Why, and for Whom?’ is to stimulate a sensibility among students for the broader economic, social, cultural, ethical, juridical and political context of the professional work of the engineer and the architect.
