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.
The RRI agenda pervades all European research funded in Horizon 2020. Such engagement calls for the involvement of a cross section of stakeholders in research such as researchers and research organisations, policy makers at European, national and international levels, business and industry, and civil society.
The conference aims to highlight work undertaken by the EESC and the GO4 projects’ Consortiums and stimulate debate between representatives of the main stakeholder groups involved in research and innovation.
