Additionally, the focus is on exchange with more than 30 associated cross-sector partners.


Within ENHANCE, the GDI is responsible for the development of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) "Responsible Innovators of Tomorrow", which was developed in collaboration with colleagues from other ENHANCE universities.

The Massive Open Online Course "Responsible Innovators of Tomorrow" is an innovative course that promotes interdisciplinary teaching and learning in an environment of excellence.



The course addresses topics related to responsible innovation with a focus on Science and Technology Studies (STS). To provide students with an interdisciplinary and broader perspective, the MOOC integrates the knowledge of experts from the different ENHANCE universities.
