We are in a year of disruptive change. Since the beginning of the Corona crisis, private, social and economic life has been changed in a short period of time, in some cases profoundly, in an unexpected way. It is unclear how the pandemic will develop and what consequences it will have. The complex challenges that already existed before the Corona crisis have thus continued to grow. Many feel overwhelmed. The desire for orientation is growing.The aim of the ethics courses offered at the HFT Stuttgartis to provide students, staff and lecturers of the university with formats for reflection and discourse on current issues in line with their needs. It is also intended to provide impulses for the social discourse of current trends and developments.
The aim of training events should not only be to impart specialist knowledge, but also to prepare future graduates for the requirements of the current time. In our time, these include trends and challenges such as digitalization, artificial intelligence and climate change, which will influence the actions of all people sooner or later. Graduates are not only part of a university or a company, but also part of society. Ethical and social questions have to be asked in this society, for which there is often too little room in specialist events.
Ethically and socially relevant questions are not only found in teaching, but also in research and transfer. Some topics and questions with great topicality are in this context:
All these 'big questions' are primarily related to the HFT Stuttgart in our work, so that the possible answers do not remain abstract.
We offer a platform at the HFT Stuttgart in the sense of a source of impulses and inspiration for the members of the HFT Stuttgart, which at the same time provides a forum for active and constructive dialogue. You are cordially invited to bring in topics and questions that are of interest to you. All ethics formats are conceived as platforms which should enable an open and transdisciplinary discourse on how ethical and socially relevant topics can be incorporated into the three pillars of the HFT Stuttgart (teaching, research and transfer).
