The RRING (Responsible Research and Innovation Networked Globally) project has just conducted an international survey of over 2000 respondents on responsible research and innovation and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Join this workshop, hosted by UNESCO and AAAS, and share your perspectives on what responsible research and innovation means. The goal of the session is to foster a dialogue on issues such as diversity, public engagement, open access and ethical practice, and inform the development of a global responsive responsible research and innovation network which will highlight best practice and embrace diverse knowledge and perspectives.

RRING Workshop on Responsible Research and Innovation (part of AAAS annual conference Seattle)
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 looks 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.
