Responsible Research and Innovation

Responsible research and innovation is an approach that anticipates and assesses potential implications and societal expectations with regard to research and innovation, with the aim to foster the design of inclusive and sustainable research and innovation. Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) implies that societal actors (researchers, citizens, policy makers, business, third sector organisations, etc.) work together during the whole research and innovation process in order to better align both the process and its outcomes with the values, needs and expectations of society. In practice, RRI is implemented as a package that includes multi-actor and public engagement in research and innovation, enabling easier access to scientific results, the take up of gender and ethics in the research and innovation content and process, and formal and informal science education.
Media
The group has participated in several media releases. Please find enclosed a list of them in this section.
Dissemination and Public Engagement
Gender Equality
In Horizon 2020 Gender is a cross-cutting issue and is mainstreamed in each of the different parts of the Work Programme, ensuring a more integrated approach to research and innovation. GEOMVAP has been contributing in several ways organizing several activities
Women in Geometry and Topology from Sep 25, 2019 10:30 AM to Sep 27, 2019 05:30 PM
The workshop Women in Geometry and Topology is an endeavour organized by the GEOMVAP research group at UPC and financed under the AGAUR project 2017SGR932 . The group GEOMVAP focuses in Geometry and Topology in the broad sense and its applications to several topics suchs as Celestial Mechanics, Control Theory, Mathematical Physics, Phylogenetics and Robotics. GEOMVAP promotes, in particular, Responsible, Research and Innovation within the framework of Horizon 2020. Among the RRI initiatives we strive for gender equality, public engagement, science communication and the visibility of women in Science and Society. The Workshop Women in Geometry and Topology will feature several plenary talks by top female mathematicians and some contributed talks (contributed by speakers of any gender identity). There will be two public lectures by Marta Macho ( Scientific Culture Chair UPV/EHU, RSME Medal 2015,Emakunde Equality Prize 2016) and Carme Torres ( Narcis Monturiol Medal 2000) addressed to the general public (you don't need to be a mathematician to follow them you just need to be curious!). A panel (open to the public) will also be organized in order to discuss the situation of women in mathematics, the gender gap and strategies for breaking the glass-ceiling inside and outside academia. Other complementary activities will be announced in due time. You can check the past edition here.
