Great value in garbage
In the quest for a circular economy and a sustainable society, we need to transform our waste into a resource. In the so-called waste package, the Riksdag and the Swedish Government have adopted new legislation that to a far greater extent considers waste to be a resource. The waste package is due to be introduced in 2025 and Uppsala University is currently conducting research on the subject.
Using films and the “suture”-concept in engineering ethics education to support students taking other perspectives
In engineering ethics education, we encourage the student to see different perspectives of an issue for example structured debates or through role play. By doing so, we stimulate moral reasoning but also imagination and empathy. Film could be a means for immersing the viewer into the perspective of others.
Webbinar June 1: The path of the refrigerated goods across the sea

Who should the self-driving car hit? Ethical dilemmas around technology
What are your underlying assumptions in having students go through your cases?
WHAT IS THIS CASE ALSO A CASE OF?
Our own research on cases in management education shows that cases provide heroic, individualistic and uncritical perspectives on leadership and organization, that they have a narrow scope and focus exclusively on the company and its shareholders, and that they are biased towards masculinity, managerialism and American capitalism. I argue here that engineering ethics should carefully scrutinize the underlying ideas that a teaching case is representing. What are your cases also a case of? What are your underlying assumptions in having students go through your cases?
Wild bilberries - an untapped resource
Only 2–5 percent of the berries in the Swedish forests are picked. Why not make more use of this resource? This is what the researchers at the newly started center FINEST wonder. They want to help local businesses see the potential of wild berries.
