WAITRO Event Series – Event 2

Innovation is crucial to our future. But what kind of future do we want? Responsible research and innovation (RRI) answer this question with clear values designed to guide every research activity. The RRI framework helps to achieve a better alignment of research and innovation with societal and environmental needs.

The aim of the workshop is to introduce the principles of RRI and to discuss how they can be applied and considered in the field of application-oriented research. The agenda will include an opening speech from the WAITRO Office Germany, a presentation on RRI in practice and a Q&A session at the end.


The following topics will be discussed in detail during the workshop:

  • Mission Orientation
  • Participation
  • Sociotechnical Innovation
