As our society becomes increasingly interconnected, the vulnerability to abuse of digital technology grows. To improve our understanding of the nature of the cyber threat to national security and of the technical, organisational and institutional means to address it responsibly, the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD) and Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) initiate a collaborative research programme.

How do you bring about responsible innovations that enjoy broad societal consensus? How do you deliver better products and services? To find answers to these questions, NWO has developed the Responsible Innovation research programme (NWO-MVI). The programme identifies the ethical and societal aspects of technological innovations at an early stage so that these can be taken into account in the design process. Ethics, law, socilogy, economics and (behavioural) psychology are some examples of these aspects. Read more about the project here

The European economic and financial crisis has led to considerable turmoil, but has also resulted in a complex arsenal of measures, reforms and legislation at EU and national levels. How effective and future-oriented are they, and is there sufficient coherence between all relevant fields, such as economics, politics, law, and ethics?

The European Research Centre for Economic and Financial Governance (EURO-CEFG) is building up an international multidisciplinary research network, not only to understand the economic crisis, but also to act as a think tank for contributing to sustainable solutions.

This research project is connected to the researchline 'for Citizens and Civil Servants'. In this research data and digital technologies are used to support vulnerable groups. Starting from the SHARED values of BOLD Cities, this project is particularly interesting because it uses technologies in the design and development of sollutions to support vulnerable adolescents. When this projects is proven succesful, the means of data collection and the adaption of the physical environment could be transferd to other places to create a more inclusive city.  Read more about this project here

By compiling original theoretical and empirical chapters, we mainly target an academic audience including students and colleagues around the world. We aim to bring together research streams and findings across disciplines and identify future research questions. With this, we seek contributions from diverse locations and angles with the goal of shedding light on the intersection of governance and data science. Read more about our project here
