Integrating societal considerations directly into research and development processes is often included as a component of programs meant to address the ethics and governance of science. For instance, definitions and frameworks for responsible innovation call for greater reflexivity and responsiveness in scientific practices. While a number of interdisciplinary and collaborative approaches have been recently developed in relation to such calls, few studies assess the efficacy of collaborations aimed at "socio-technical integration." This talk reports on the results of the Socio-Technical Integration Research (STIR) project, which coordinated 30 laboratory engagement studies in order to explore the possibility and utility of enhancing reflexivity and responsiveness in scientific and engineering laboratory practices.
27 May to 15 August 2015: Visiting Professor. Science, Technology and Policy Studies (STePS) Department, University of Twente, The Netherlands
Due to preparation work for the MBS redevelopment project, access to the Harold Hankins building is no longer possible via the University Precinct Centre. Please use the main entrance of MBS West (Building Number 29 on the Campus Map) and take the lifts to the left of the main reception desk to the 6th floor. Turn left (‘access to Harold Hankins’ is signed) and go through the door at the end of the corridor and left through a second door into the stairwell. Go down a half flight of stairs following the sign ‘access to Harold Hankins’ and through the door into the Harold Hankins building and along the corridor until you get to the main stairwell/lift lobby. Take the lift to the tenth floor then turn right out of the lift.
Alternatively, if you are a member of the University, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for access to Harold Hankins and the door on Booth Street West
