Science and Technology Innovation Program


Socio-Technical Integration Research Project Workshop 4

February 16, 2011 // 8:00am12:00pm

On February 16th and 17th, 2011, the Synthetic Biology Project at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars will host the Socio-Technical Integration Research (STIR) Project Workshop 4.

The Socio-Technical Integration Research project is conducting a coordinated set of 20 laboratory engagement studies to assess and compare the varying pressures on, and capacities for, laboratories to integrate broader societal considerations into their work. These studies will be conducted by ten doctoral students and will be aimed at guiding research decisions toward responsible innovation.

Please join us on February 16th and 17th to discuss these vital issues with a distinguished gathering of laboratory directors, embedded social scientists and research councils from around the world.

Discussion topics will include:

• Experiences in synergistically enhancing the creativity and responsibility of scientific research,
• Responsible innovation from the viewpoints of natural scientists, social scientists and research agencies, and
• The establishment of an international network of scientists and research agencies working toward responsible innovation.
