ERC Grant for Ibo van de Poel for Research on ‘Design for Changing Values’

2018-04-26T14:18:32+00:00April 9th, 2018|Categories: DDfV News|

The European Research Council has awarded a 2.5 million euro ERC Advanced Grant to DDFV researcher Ibo van de Poel. In the coming five years, he and his team will develop a philosophical theory of value change that can be used to improve the ability of complex socio-technical systems such as gas infrastructure, blockchains, energy grids and self-driving cars to adapt to changing values. The grant gives a big impulse to one of the central themes of the DDFV Institute, namely value dynamics.
