VIRI Institutional Affiliate

PROmoting Global REsponsible research and Social and Scientific innovation (ProGReSS) is an FP7 funded network project (2013-2016), which promotes RRI globally. Specific aims are:

1. Link existing international networks of RRI with relevant societal actors on a global scale to focus innovation on societal desirability.

2. Complete a major fact-finding mission comparing science funding strategies and innovation policies in Europe, the US, China, Japan, India, Australia, and South Africa.

3. Advocate a European normative model for RRI globally, using constitutional values as a driver to inform societal desirability.

4. Develop a strategy for fostering the convergence of regional innovation systems at the global level. 

VIRI Partner Doris Schroeder is the principal investigator for the ProGReSS, a professor of moral philosophy, and director of the Centre for Professional Ethics.
