Building on the concept of "RRI - responsible research and innovation", students should be empowered to integrate the demands of a diverse society and the ethical context of technological developments into their future professional field of action. In applying the method of Design Thinking, the students of the courses "Management and Engineering - Water" and "Management and Engineering - Time" dealt with the topic of sustainable and socially responsible innovation design. In international teams they were able to present their prototypes after an intense week. The seminar was organized by the GDI under the direction of Univ.-Prof. Dr. phil. Carmen Leicht-Scholten and Linda Steuer.
