What are the opportunities, challenges and costs deriving from the adoption of responsible research and innovation (RRI) principles? Are RRI practices - such as stakeholder engagement, open access, transparency, and participatory / value sensitive product design - suitable and of interest to companies? Are there common models for implementation at industrial level, or should a case-by-case approach be pursued?

These are some of the questions that will be addressed in the stakeholder dialogue event. The goals will be to facilitate a debate amongst research, industry, policy and civil society representatives, and to compare and discuss practical experiences and approaches concerning the take-up and further development of RRI principles and procedures by industrial research and innovation actors. The dialogue will focus on two of the key technological areas explored within the PRISMA project: nanotechnology and synthetic biology.
