New ideas are never born out of vacuum, but, as the medieval thinkers believed, by standing on the shoulders of our predecessors. New technologies are never developed out of nothing, but by enriching and refining our knowledge. We discuss and debate, we test the limits and go beyond the known borders, we refuse to take everything for granted and imagine innovative ways to solve old and new problems.
The Centre for Advanced Research in Management and Applied Ethics provides the right environment to explore new ideas and technologies, to harness our knowledge for future generations. Through CARMAE Exploratory Workshops we bring together people and ideas and foster innovation.

This series of exploratory workshops is focused on the ethics of neuromarketing and less on sole neuromarketing subjects. nMKT Ethics EXP 2017 is being organized in partnership with BuyerBrain.
