Responsible Research and Innovation Workshop

On the afternoon of 19th June 2017 we hosted Prof Bernd Stahl, one of the Directors of ORBIT and he led a workshop on responsible research and innovation (RRI).

The EPSRC have recently reasserted their commitment to responsible research and in particular the ICT theme has funded the ORBIT project to promote responsible research and innovation across the UK ICT research community.

ESPRC Framework for Responsible Innovation

UK ICT research community

On the afternoon of 19th June 2017 we hosted Prof Bernd Stahl, one of the Directors of ORBIT and he led a workshop on responsible research and innovation (RRI).

The workshop covered the following topics:

  • what constitutes RRI in ICT
  • advice on how to comply with EPSRC strategy in this area
  • a framework to reflect on social and ethical implications of your research

The workshop generated several lively discussions as the participants considered a number of interesting case studies prepared by Bernd.

Those interested in this topic may also find the  RRI website useful although this aims to support researchers in all fields rather than then EPSRC ICT theme.
