Abstract

The potential for an ongoing interdisciplinary conversation about RRI at the University of Nottingham (UoN) was identified during a research project conducted in summer 2014 to investigate how RRI is being interpreted within UoN (Pearce et al., 2014).

On 8th January 2015, following a public lecture by Professor Richard Owen, University of Exeter, on ‘Responsible Research and Innovation: From nice words

to meaningful action’, 18 participants from 11 schools and departments across UoN gathered to address the following workshop aims:

1. Establish an RRI network across UoN;

2. Share understandings of RRI from different perspectives and disciplines;

3. Explore what the RRI agenda means, how we might want to respond and what support might be needed.

The Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) Workshop was convened and facilitated by Dr Sarah Hartley (School of Biosciences) and Dr Warren Pearce (School of Sociology and Social Policy), with financial support from the

Leverhulme Trust ‘Making Science Public’ programme and the Science,Technology and Society Priority Group.
