This year CIRAD-IFCU launches a series of webinars entitled « Research Talks » aimed at covering some of today’s major trends in the research field. The webinars welcome one or two speakers each month, who will present an overview of a selected trend at a national, regional or global scale based on their own works and experience. Presentations will be followed by half an hour of informal debate and interaction with participants. The Talks will take place in English, French or Spanish depending on the guest(s) and the regions targeted.
The topics dealt with during the first semester will address open access, responsible research and innovation (RRI), use of social networks as a research technique, sustainable research practices and scholarly publishing

Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI):
Evolution and New Perspectives

Dr. Carolina Llorente Lope / Dr.  Luisa Fernanda Barbosa Gómez 

Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain

In this talk we will give an overview of the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), its evolution and future perspectives. We will summarize both of the most widespread conceptual and practical understandings of RRI and how it relates with emerging trends like Open Science. During this session, we will explore different multidisciplinary examples which integrate this approach to research and offer practical tools to apply RRI and Open Science.

The main goal of this talk is to serve as a trigger for reflection upon research and innovation processes and their impact. Therefore, the last part of the session will be an open discussion. We are keen to hear your ideas, opinions and experiences.
