If you would like to start the year with new insights in Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) you should not miss this event: The Go4 Joint Final Conference on RRI hosted by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) on January 14 and 15, 2016 in Brussels. The conference with the leading theme “Responsible Research and Innovation in Europe and across the World: Shaping new Horizons” is a collaboration between Res-AGorA (www.res-agora.eu) and three other EU funded RRI projects: GREAT, Responsibility and ProGReSS (Go4).

The EU seeks to become a genuine Innovation Union by 2020, striving for excellent science, competitive industry, and a better society without compromising on sustainability, ethical acceptability or societal desirability. Responsible Research and Innovation, RRI, is a governance approach that supports the Innovation Union. There is an active debate on how best to translate the broad aims of the Innovation Union into principles and concrete actions for RRI. While the discourse on RRI is far from being settled, an impressive number of RRI activities have unfolded over the past few years. The European Union’s funding of dedicated RRI research projects and coordination activities has significantly contributed to this development.

The first wave of these projects, the Go4, will be ready to present their findings, conceptual developments, concrete messages and policy recommendations on 14-15 January 2016.
