Join Elektor on November 18, 2021, for the World
Ethical Electronics Forum (WEEF) and watch pro engineers,
electronics industry executives, tech journalists, and
forward-thinking policy makers discuss ethics and sustainable
development goals. As an online attendee, you can think along with
the WEEF panelists and speakers as they touch on topics such as
eco-friendly PCB design, e-waste management, social impact
electronics projects, and more. Register for free today.
Elektor launched the first DIY electronics movement
in the 20th century. Since 1961, approaches to ethical
decision-making have changed quite a bit. Much like design
processes and technical workflows, engineers and makers alike must
regularly revisit and re-imagine codes of ethics to keep up with
the times. To do so, we are prompting them with a few
- Do individual electrical engineers, embedded
programmers, and makers have an ethical responsibility to use their
skills and components in positive ways?
- Should ethics play a role in how multinational
electronics-focused corporations do business?
- How should electronics ethics factor in the ways
hardware start-ups approach product development?
We all must consider these important questions as we
develop the electronic systems and information technology solutions
that will shape the 21st century. Elektor and ELEKTRONIKPRAXIS
invite members of the high-tech community to participate in the
inaugural WEEF, powered by productronica, which will feature
in-depth talks and debates on a wide range of ethical issues. The
first ‘’pioneer edition’’ of WEEF will take place in Munich,
Germany and online.
