Wessel Reijers is doing research in the areas of philosophy and ethics of technology in the ADAPT Centre. His main focus is on how to integrate ethics in the practices of research and innovation. Currently, he is working on developing a theoretical, narrative approach to understand how technologies mediate human relations. Also, he works on a practical application of his research in the so-called “ethics canvas”, which is a tool for researchers to explore ethical issues.
