Who we are

Daan Schuurbiers, director of DPF, has encouraged early reflection on the possible social impacts of emerging technologies throughout his research and current advisory work. He designs training courses for researchers, builds novel interdisciplinary collaborations, advises on research policy and regularly speaks at conferences to raise awareness with researchers of the broader societal dimensions of their work.

She uses tools like co-creation, storytelling, design thinking, and data visualisation to shape our thoughts on new technologies and societal challenges. She founded Studio HB, a studio for visual communication. www.studio-hb.nl.
