As part of the fPET 2016 conference, WI1 conducted an industry jam session at JOSEPHS: representatives of large engineering companies presented grand challenges from industry to philosophers of technology and ethics & engineering scholars. Both worked together on analysis and solution development, using a variety of creative techniques. The jam session was enthusiastically received by the participants of fPET and plans are under way to turn this kind of event into a regular part of each fPET conference in the future. We are grateful to all participants for their contribution, especially our guests from industry who engaged in this activity! For further information, see www.fPET2016.org.
