Responsible Innovation : a European Agenda?

On Aug 24 – 25, the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) will host the Fourth International Conference on Responsible Innovation in The Hague, The Netherlands. The conference will bring together researchers from various academic disciplines, as well as representatives from both public and private sector to discuss the merits, practices and necessity of responsible innovation for technological development.

This year’s conference theme will be “Responsible Innovation: a European Agenda?”. Central will be the multiplicity and divergence of values that are at play in the development of new technologies, as well as the importance to involve stakeholders at all stages in research and innovation processes.

The conference will draw lessons learned from the research projects within the Responsible Innovation programme, funded by NWO, as well as invite others to share their experience and research in Responsible Innovation. Moreover, the conference will take stock of the research results that have been achieved so far and use these to look ahead towards the follow-up programme Responsible Innovation that will be launched this spring.
