Technology has positive effects on humans' lives, but there are also undesirable consequences of technologies that can be intentional or unintentional. In other words, when we invent a new technology, we also invent accidents and undesirable implications generated by that technology. Technology has cultural influences; for instance, it affects how we work, how we learn and how we communicate.
However, these impacts are much more ambivalent; therefore, they are interesting for ethical analysis. Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), a central concept in EU funded research, aims to bridge the internal ethos of research with wider societal interests and ethical values. RRI tries to bridge the gap in the embedded interactions of practices such as science, technology, culture, politics, society and ethics.
In this two hours of lecture, Aalborg University's founder of Techno-Anthropology Tom Børsen will introduce the RRI framework and its applicability for technological innovations. He will present the six pillars of RRI tool, and give concrete examples that illustrate how humans and technologies can fruitfully flourish together. There will be some time for stimulating reflections on research and innovation in heterogeneous groups among the attendees.


Tom Børsen

Associate Professor Tom Børsen has more than 10 years of experience in Techno-Anthropological research. Before he started at Aalborg University he was working with philosophy of science and research ethics at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen. He is the former head of the Study Board for Sustainable Design and Techno-anthropology, and currently, he leads multiple research initiatives on digitalization and ethics in high education. He is a member of the research group in Techno-Anthropology and Participation (TAPAR) and a board member of the think tank: Techno-Ethics. Tom Børsen’s research clusters around five aspects of Responsible Research and Technological Innovation: Ethical Technology Assessment, Robust Technologies through Action Research, Teaching Responsibility in Higher Education, Interdisciplinary Policy Advice on Technological Risks, and Corporate Social Responsibility.
