    An ethics-in-action framework for designing data-driven product service systems

    This project is about identifying the postdisciplinary knowledge and skills needed for future collaboration across different disciplines and sectors in the field of design, with focus on prototyping new professional roles and developing speculative job profiles. In this project, we explore how the iterative deployment of small teams with different disciplinary background in real-world settings (“prototeams”) enables us to speculate, situate and understand the emerging and future needs of responsible and inclusive design practices.
