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!
