Current and planned projects include: 

Trinity Business Ethics Speaker Series 

Now in its third year, this series explores contemporary issues in the field of business ethics. 

Tech for Integrity 

Currently in planning phase, this action research project in the field of responsible technology will potentially be conducted in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the ADAPT Centre.

In December 2022, Trinity Business School and the World Economic Forum co-hosted a workshop at the International Anti-Corruption Conference in Washington DC. The topic was: “What’s Next for Tech for Integrity: Emerging Opportunities, Persisting Challenges and Potential Risks”. A recording of the workshop is available here.
