The topic of SymOrg 2016 is “Reshaping the Future through Sustainable Business Development and Entrepreneurship”. This will be held in June 10-13, in Zlatibor, Serbia organized by the University of Belgrade. Dr Ganesh Nathan will deliver his presentation on the topic of ‘Design Thinking Approach to Ethical (Responsible) Innovation. There is growing interest and importance for responsible research and innovation (RRI) among academic scholars and policy makers, especially, in relation to emerging technologies such as nanotechnology. It is also to be noted, although design thinking approach has been around since 1960s, there is renewed interest in this approach to innovation with increasing number of related publications over the last couple of decades. It is also currently introduced in a number of schools and community projects. His paper attempts to show that design thinking approach is potentially conducive to ethical (responsible) innovation due to its emphasis on human centred design.
