Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in the Green Village

Seminar and workshop

Innovation can bring a lot of good to society, but it may also have some unexpected consequences. The challenge is to innovate in a responsible way – beneficial to both business and society. Then, many stakeholders and many aspects have to be addressed so an interdisciplinary approach is needed.

On 29 May a seminar and workshop on ‘Responsible Research and Innovation in the Green Village at TU Delft' will be organised by the department of VTI of the TPM faculty. Co-organisers are the Green Village and the New HoRRizon partners ZSI  and GESIS.

The main aim of the event is to share knowledge and apply Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) principles to projects that companies are currently executing at The Green Village.

In the morning the concept of RRI will be introduced and discussed. Subsequently the latest innovations and research at the Green Village will be visited. In the afternoon you can join us for a workshop connecting Innovations of the Green Village on water, renewable energy storage and autonomous driving to the RRI principles. For the projects it means a responsibility “check” and it will enhance the social added value and the social acceptance as well as the sustainability of the innovations.

The day will start at 9.00h at the Bouwcampus building next to the Green Village at TU Delft Campus and will end around 5pm.  If you have any questions please contact Eileen Focke-Bakker To register contact Astrid Pinzger.
