More information and registration here

Early bird registration is now closed, but it is still possible to register.

We introduce the body of academic knowledge underpinning the RRI concept, namely Science and Technology Studies (STS) and history, philosophy and sociology of science. The main course objective is to enhance participants’ knowledge on how scientific work is intertwined with changes in society and to introduce them to ideas of democratization of science and current international discussions on RRI. We will combine theoretical insights with long group discussions and hands-on exercises of applying RRI-methods in the context of participants’ research projects. Discussions on strengths of limitations of the concept of RRI in research practice will be included.

Digital Life Norway Research School supports all members with travel grants to cover travel- and accommodation costs.
