February 24, 2021 Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) on the rise, Dr. Carolina Llorente Lope and Dr. Luisa Fernanda Barbosa Gómez, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain (English)
In this talk we will give an overview of the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), its evolution and future perspectives. We will summarize both of the most widespread conceptual and practical understandings of RRI and how it relates with emerging trends like Open Science. During this session, we will explore different multidisciplinary examples which integrate this approach to research and offer practical tools to apply RRI and Open Science.
The main goal of this talk is to serve as a trigger for reflection upon research and innovation processes and their impact. Therefore, the last part of the session will be an open discussion. We are keen to hear your ideas, opinions and experiences.
