RRI Workshop "Lost in Translation?"

Moving Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) from the conceptual to the practise.

Sted: Pilestredet 32 Room N020_113 Dato og tid: torsdag 16. november 2017 kl. 08.30 - 13.15

illustrasjon RRI

Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) is becoming particularly important in fields such as information technology and the use of digital media. Digital methods and practices are increasingly common in research projects and innovation.

What does it mean in practical terms? How can we facilitate the uptake of RRI? How can we measure the impact of RRI?

In this workshop, we aim to initiate general reflections and open dialogue about responsible design, development and use of digital media for research. By digital media we here understand a wide variety of methods from data collection from social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter), voluntary reporting via tools (e.g. Mobile apps), online surveys, and similar.

  • Professor Bernd Carsten Stahl . He is a prominent academic in the field of RRI, with significant and important academic contributions.
  • Helge Rynning from the Research Council of Norway. The Research Council have been in the forefront of implementing requirements for ethical and societal in their calls.
