Odense, Denmark. GAP2’s Mark Dubois spoke at the EU Presidency conference ‘Science in Dialogue’, which took place on the 23rd-25th of April 2012. He took part in a workshop on day 2, titled ‘A Fruitful Relationship Between Research and Politics’.
The conference was an opportunity for European stakeholders – policy makers, research institutions, business representatives, science communicators and civil society – to meet and discuss the interaction between science, innovation and society. The aim of the conference was to provide input on aspects of a European model for Responsible Research and Innovation and how it might be introduced in future EC legal and financial structure. Through a series of five workshops, it drew upon the participants’ ideas, opinions and suggestions in an interactive conference format.
