During the past decade, “responsible research and innovation” (RRI) has gained prominence as an approach to governing the future course of emerging technologies. To a great degree, RRI has acted as a central pillar in the European research policy. Even though the concept has – at least in part – emerged as a response to public concerns about the safety of nanotechnology, it is still worth investigating what “responsibility” means in the context of nanotech innovations.
Welcome to a webinar hosted by the Mistra Environmental Nanosafety programme where key questions and research frontiers related to responsible innovation will be discussed.
- Karl Palmås, researcher at the Division of Science, Technology and Society at Chalmers University of Technology, and part of Mistra Environmental Nanosafety, work package 4
- Lars Sickert, Innovation Facilitator at Tetra Pak
- Åsalie Hartmanis, Mistra Board Member
Date: 2nd March
Time: 13 – 14.00
