From 27/01/2013 to 28/01/2016
The RESPONSIBILITY project aims to create a network of stakeholders that would adopt and diffuse a common understanding in RRI between different actors in Europe and around the globe. In doing so it will develop a model and provide a tool for international cooperation, the RESPONSIBILITY Observatory, involving the societal, policy and research stakeholders to these activities. It intends to provide practical means and structure a crucial interaction between society and research, providing a set of recommendations and tools to policy makers and active RRI stakeholders in order to take the necessary measures to nest responsible research and innovation into products and services from the very beginning (“efficient RRI by design”)
The project will develop the Observatory for International Responsible Research and Innovation Coordination. This observatory will be hosted in the project’s website. The Observatory will have a role of providing RRI policy guidelines. It will be accessible for all interested citizens besides the policy makers and the researchers. Important societal issues interrelated to ethics, human dignity and privacy will be on the core of the Observatory outlook towards societal stakeholders. The Observatory will be the virtual place where the awareness raising and training activities will be deployed.
