Can Responsible Research and Innovation expedite Europe's economic renewal?
    Friday July 13, 2012 10:45am - 12:15pm @ Liffey Hall 2

    In this session a high-level panel will discuss the role that Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) can play in setting Europe on a growth trajectory that is economically, environmentally and socially sustainable.

    The panel will explore how the ideas and concepts of RRI can advance the Innovation Union initiative. In simple terms, the Innovation Union, a flagship initiative of the Europe 2020 strategy, aims to turn ideas into jobs, to generate green growth and to stimulate social progress.

    The following questions will be addressed during the discussion:

    1. How can the principles of RRI be incorporated into real policy instruments?
    2. What are the implications of RRI for industry: SMEs and multinationals?
    3. What opportunities or competitive advantage does RRI open up for industry?
    4. What are the implications if our global trading partners do not adhere to the same standards of RRI?
