In the drive for more sustainable futures, research and innovation actors are increasingly called upon to anticipate and respond to expectations and concerns from citizens and policy, industry and a variety of other stakeholders. The cultivation of such processes and approaches is now firmly part of policy initiatives, such as Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).

This joint conference by the EU-funded projects “NUCLEUS” and “RRI-Practice” explores the pathways that institutions may follow towards being more socially responsive: What can research-performing organisations learn from the projects’ institutional RRI experiments (‘Practical Pathways’)? And how can research policy incentivise stakeholders to contribute to more responsive science and innovation systems (‘Policy Pathways’)?
