Tsjalling Swierstra


Tsjalling Swierstra is chair of the Department of Philosophy at Maastricht University, and initiating co-founder of the Journal for Responsible Innovation. With a background in philosophy and political science, his particular interests regard the ethical assessment of new and emerging sciences and technologies that as yet largely exist in the form of expectations, promises, and fears. For Swierstra, ethical reflection is an intrinsic dimension of the innovation process itself, and includes anticipation of consequences and stakeholder involvement in agenda setting.
