Science, Technology, and Society: RRI Course Digital Life Norway

This course prepares PhD candidates and early career researchers within biotechnology, life science and neighbouring scientific fields to adopt Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in their research practice.

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.


The course consists of two parts, it is not possible to attend only one of the meetings.
Trondheim: 11-13 April 2018
Bergen: 18-20 June 2018
