PROmoting Global REsponsible research and Social and Scientific innovation: ProGReSS

The EU project ProGReSS aimed to promote a European approach to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) through a global network. The composition of the consortium was the hard core of this network. Thanks to its partners and advisors, the project gained from:

  • the global geographic coverage (Europe, the US, China, Japan, India, Australia and South Africa),
  • the involvement of relevant stakeholders (academia, international organisations, industry, SME research, NGOs, policy advisors and research funders), and
  • on complementary interdisciplinarity (computer and information science, economics, engineering, ethics, gender studies, geography, law, management, medicine, natural sciences, political science, psychology, social sciences, technology studies).

Work package 2: Innovation Systems
