The 3TU.Ethics Centre provides is members with the opportunity to apply for travel subsidies in order to attend relevant academic events. Dr. Pieter Vermaas (TUD) used this subsidy to attend the forum on Philosophy, Engineering and Technology.
The fPET (forum on Philosophy, Engineering and Technology) is becoming a stable event at which engineers and philosophers interested in the interaction between the fields meet every two years. This year the event took place in Nürnberg, Germany.
Pieter enriched the event with a presentation about the benchmarking of design methods and tools, to improve claims about what design can do.
