3.1 Incremental & Radical Innovation

Course subject(s) 3. How Innovations Come About

Do you still remember the definition of innovation given by Jeroen?

“Innovation is an activity or process which may lead to previously unknown designs pertaining either to the physical world (think of buildings or infrastructure), the conceptual world (for example conceptual frameworks, mathematics, logic, theory, software), the institutional world (like social and legal institutions, procedures and organizations) or combinations of these which – when implemented – expand the set of options.”

In the web lecture, we will focus on technical innovation and we will discuss four topics with you:

  1. What is Innovation?
  2. Incremental vs. Radical Innovation
  3. Does responsible innovation require radical innovation?
  4. Are new moral issues raised by radical innovations?
