Responsible research and innovation in the health industry

Conference - EESC premises - room JDE 62, Brussels, Belgium

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 organized a conference “Responsible Research and Innovation in the Health Industry” held at the EESC premises, in Brussels, on 18 and 19 May 2017.

The conference discussed how RRI can help to boost innovation in biomedicine and health with a special focus on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). It was asked how social values and needs can be “integrated from scratch” and which drivers and obstacles RRI encounters when implemented in companies.
