Save the date: Conference on RRI in the Health Industry
Posted by RRI Tools on 06 Mar 2017
Conference “Responsible Research and Innovation in the Health Industry”
To be held at the EESC premises, in Brussels, on 18 and 19 May 2017. Co-organized by the EU project Responsible-Industry, the European Institute of Innovation and Technology and the European Economic and Social Committee
Responsible Research and Innovation 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 conference will discuss how RRI can help to boost innovation in biomedicine and health with a special focus on 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.
Program and registration will follow soon. Join us in the discussion at the EESC premises on 18 & 19 May and share your view. For budgetary reasons, the Committee will not be able to pay transport costs and other expenses but participation in the event is free.
