War material research - progressive or problematic?
Some say cooperation between scientists and engineers and the defence industry is a win win situation with spin-off effects on many sectors of society. Others claim scientists and engineers have a personal responsibility for the weapons being the result of the cooperation. Do we want an ethical code for research effects on conflict? What considerations should be made by the universities?
