Responsible Innovation in Nanotech
During the past decade, "responsible research and innovation" (RRI) has gained prominence as an approach to governing the future course of emerging technologies. To a great degree, RRI has acted as a central pillar in the European research policy. Even though the concept has - at least in part - emerged as a response to public concerns about the safety of nanotechnology, it is still worth investigating what "responsibility" means in the context of nanotech innovations.
Welcome to a webinar and discussion highlighting key questions and research frontiers related to responsible innovation.
Karl Palmås, researcher at the Division of Science, Technology and Society at Chalmers University of Technology, and part of Mistra Environmental Nanosafety, work package 4
Lars Sickert, Innovation Facilitator at Tetra Pak
Åsalie Hartmanis, Mistra Board Member and previously active in SwedNanoTech
The webinar is open to everyone. Please register your attendance by emailing noomi [dot] egan [at] fsi [dot] lu [dot] se to receive a zoom-link to the webinar.
This webinar is part of a new webinar series by Mistra Environmental Nanosafety highlighting nanosafety research and nanotechnology. The research programme is coordinated by Lund University.
