In May 2014, Doris visited the University of Hokkaido to work with the ProGReSS external advisor, Associate Professor Shunzo Majima. She gave one lecture on “Applied Ethics” and one seminar on “RRI – How to drive publicly funded research towards socially desirable goals“. Japan will be included in Deliverable 3.1., which analyses how governments around the world try to achieve strategic goals through research funding.
Hokkaido University is one of the top seven in the country, a former imperial university. One of its four principles states that “applied research earnestly discusses how it can help human beings”.
