Human Technology Foundation created in 2012 is a foundation but also a research and action network placing the human being at the heart of technology development. For them, these technologies are also part of the solutions for building a society that is more respectful of everyone.
The Human Technology Foundation network has several thousand members and operates in Paris, Montreal and Geneva. Indeed, if most technologies are neither good nor bad in themselves, they are not neutral either: they carry an intentionality and a vision of the human being that must be questioned. From this perspective, the Human Technology Foundation is striving to put technology back at the heart of social debates.
The Foundation's main missions are, first and foremost, to be a coordinator of international multidisciplinary research projects. The Human Technology Foundation is also an interface between academia, society and the economy. Finally, it is also a provider of expertise for decision-makers. Indeed, the Human Technology Foundation favours a transversal approach with three areas of expertise:
- Research in practical ethics
- Support for politicians and decision-makers
- Support for large companies and entrepreneurs.
