Responsible Research and Innovation in/under Urgency


DATE: 3-4 June 2022

LOCATION: Stegi Onassis
Galaxy Studio, Galaxia-2
107-109 Syngrou Avenue
Athens 117 45

The workshop aims to reflect on the role of RRI in periods of urgency and its potential limits.

The workshop addresses the following questions:  

  • How is the relationship between technical government and citizens to be reimagined in times of urgency?
  • How does urgency, due to global challenges, legitimize or de-legitimize the emergence and institutionalization of RRI in funding bodies, in regulatory bodies, in research policy institutions and universities?
  • What is the role of public private partnerships in/under urgencies?
  • How should we balance  top-down regulatory interventions and bottom-up participatory innovation given the quest for immediate and timely technical choices and solutions?

Speakers: Stephen Hilgartner, Effy Vayena, Graham Dutfield, Rene von Schomberg, Erik Fisher, Ellen-Marie Forsberg, Robert Smith, Olufemi Adenitan, Stergios Aidinlis, Niels Van Dijk, Sofia Efstathiou, Katerina Sideri, Stathis Arapostathis, Pierre Delvenne, Georgios Yannopoulos Kjetil Rommetveit, Mahendra Shahare, Efi Nakopoulou
