Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) calls for innovation that integrates societal concerns in all the phases of R&I, from the design of the research agendas to the commercialization of research outcomes. The idea of RRI is that anticipating the social needs and concerns of novel technologies by integrating wider society will facilitate better innovation.
The European Institute of Innovation and Technology, the European Economic and Social Committee and the EU project Responsible-Industry organize a conference “Responsible Research and Innovation in the Health Industry” to be held at the EESC premises, in Brussels, on 18 and 19 May 2017.
The conference will discuss how RRI can help to boost innovation in biomedicine and health with a special focus on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). It will ask how social values and needs can be “integrated from scratch” and which drivers and obstacles RRI encounters when implemented in companies.
Join us in the discussion at the EESC premises on 18 & 19 May and share your view.
Registration is now open, and while it is free of charge, seating is limited. The deadline for registration is 16.5.2017.
An interpretation will be provided from English and French into English and French.
