Welcome to ProGReSS!
Our goal is to promote a governance framework for Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) globally. We will compare science funding strategies and innovation policies in Europe, the US, China, Japan, India, Australia and South Africa. Linking existing RRI networks from all over the world, we seek to build support and momentum around a normative model for RRI to foster the convergence of innovation systems at the global level.
Thanks for your interest!

News: Kick-off meeting in Paris
From 20 – 22 March 2013 the UNESCO hosted the Progress Kick-off Meeting at their Headquarters in Paris. The synergies between UNESCO and Progress were apparent throughout all sessions. UNESCO has been advocating for a more socially responsible and ethical model to govern scientific research and innovation globally and Progress aims to provide a strategy to promote socially desirable goals. Progress partners and advisors from all continents joined the meeting in Paris to exchange ideas about pro-poor innovation, broader impacts of science, guiding funding to address grand challenges

Partners & Advisors
ProGReSS aims to promote a European approach to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) through a global network. The composition of the consortium is the hard core of this network. Thanks to its partners and advisors, the project benefits from:
- global geographic coverage (Europe, the US, China, Japan, India, Australia and South Africa),
- involvement of relevant stakeholders (academia, international organisations, industry, SME research, NGOs, policy advisors and research funders), and
- complementary interdisciplinarity (Computer and information science, Economics, Engineering, Ethics, Gender Studies, Geography, Law, Management, Medicine, Natural Sciences, Political Science, Psychology, Social Sciences, Technology studies).
