1 billion Euro donated Human Brain Project includes a responsible innovation approach

30 January 2013: the highest funded project in human history, the human brain project, is to include a responsible research and innovation (RRI) approach. It indeed does satisfy some crucial elements of RRI, I proposed, such as a systematic foresight component, an integrated social-ethical dimension, as well as the particpation of embedded social scientists.
Kings College will be executing the foresight component.
