RRING Workshop on Responsible Research and Innovation in Seattle

By SalM on February 20, 2019 in RRING NEWS

The workshop was held on Thursday 13th February 2020 as a pre-workshop to the AAAS annual conference in Seattle.  Conference attendees with a specific interest in the topic were able to opt to participate in the workshop, alongside members of AAAS advisory group who were specifically invited. The workshop included presentations from Dr Eric Jensen (ICORSA) and April Tash (UNESCO) on the initial findings from RRING global survey looking at both Responsible Research and Innovation and the UN Sustainable Development Goals; and the UNESCO Recommendation on Science and Scientific Researchers. Participants were then asked to participate in facilitated discussions led by RRING project team members on two main topics.  Firstly to give their perspective on what responsible research and innovation means to them and secondly they were asked what does socially responsible science look like and what are the indicators by which to measure this.  These discussions will continue to inform RRING project research as we look to seek a global understanding of responsible research and innovation.
