The Conference Science, Innovation and Society: achieving Responsible Research and Innovation (SIS-RRI) is an international event organised by the National Research Council (CNR) in collaboration with the Agency for the Promotion of European Research (APRE). The Conference is organised under the auspices of the Italian EU Presidency, and will take place in Rome, on 19 - 21 November 2014.
The Conference’s theme will be the evolution of EU funded activities and policies on Responsible Research and Innovation. The transition from “Science and Society” to “Science in Society” and ultimately to “Science with and for Society” will be discussed. The conference will be the first occasion after the launch of HORIZON 2020 to take the stock of the project results in the 6th and 7th EU Framework programmes.
The whole event will consist of Conference sessions and two side events (Brokerage event and Art & Innovation Exhibition).
The Conference represents a unique opportunity for setting an agenda to promote a true cross- fertilization between science and society. The Conference will deliver a concluding document, a Rome Declaration, which will draw on the Conference conclusions and recommendations and tackle, among others, the following issues:
- prompting new governance strategies for science and scientific institutions;
- fostering Research Integrity in Europe;
- defining new tools for understanding society, forecasting changes and ameliorating the exchange between science and society.
