Why is it important to engage artists, civil society and social enterprise in the development of RRI in ICT research?

As part of the RRI ICT Forum project, Euclid Network and iMAL are organising specific events dedicated to artists, civil society and social entrepreneurs and their role in responsible research and innovation (RRI) in ICT. The three events, namely "Tech for Impact: How can civil society and social enterprise use ICT to drive positive change?", "Art performances" and "Being Human in a big data and robotics era - perspectives by artists & scientists", will take place in Brussels on November 9 & 10, 2015.

- On Monday 9, Tech for Impact will provide a forum for civil society and social enterprise actors to come together with researchers, policy-makers and industry representatives and explore how science and technology can be utilised to find innovative solutions to traditional societal challenges. The goal is to engage civil society and social enterprise in a responsible research approach in order to facilitate a participatory and multi-stakeholder dialogue across Horizon 2020. This will ultimately lead to the development of new ICT instruments that meet the needs and expectations of citizens.

- In the evening, a disruptive Art performance will showcase artists, such as Julien Maire and Lucas Lejeune, using ICT as their medium of expression.

- On Tuesday 10, the event will continue with an afternoon of debates, gathering scientists/engineers and artists to discuss about selected responsible ICT research topics where there is a clear need of some responsability to guarantee positive societal impacts. These topics include AI & robotics, deep learning, big data and data mining.
