What are the barriers, compromises, opportunities and limits of responsible research funding in today’s research and innovation system?
This year’s edition focuses on the role of research funding organisations in the creation of responsible research funding cultures. Specifically, we ask research funders, policymakers and research performing organisations what barriers exist to funding responsible research, what compromises are made and where the limits of responsible research funding are in the research and innovation system.
What is the format?
The point of departure is a European study, led by SUPER MoRRI, about changing patterns of funding responsible research. A discussion paper that summarises the key issues, keynote presentations , and moderated break-out groups will summit at a collective discussion, where the goal is to critically discuss how notions of responsibility challenge the position of research funding organisations and how to address this transformation.

What is SUPER MoRRI?
Funded by the European Commission under Horizon2020, the project aims at supporting processes of transformation in the r&i system through better alignment of societal values, needs and concerns. The goal is to build a societally robust monitoring and evaluation system for responsible research and innovation.
