In the forthcoming period the possibilities for Responsible Innovation (MVI) research mainly lie within specific research programmes/initiatives within the top sectors. The underlying reasons for this are that the importance of MVI is increasingly recognised and there is a growing demand to link responsible innovation research to NWO research programmes/initiatives. MVI will be linked to these initiatives from the outset, if possible as soon as the research agenda is drawn up. In view of the interdisciplinary collaboration (between humanities, natural sciences and social sciences researchers) matchmaking events will be organised. Via the MVI newsletter and the MVI webportal more information will be released when a call is published or a relevant meeting is scheduled to take place.

In de 2.0 versie van het IMDI zal de benadering van het NWO-programma Maatschappelijk verantwoord innoveren (MVI) een belangrijk onderdeel zijn.
How can you include citizens’ ethical considerations in real-world economic policy analysis? In the MVI-project Participatory Value Evaluation: a new assessment model for promoting social acceptance of sustainable energy policies, researchers from Delft University of Technology and VU Amsterdam further develop a new assessment tool that does exactly that. The research combines insights from Economics, Philosophy, Political Science, Environment and Natural Resources.
To assure that younger generations of NWO-MVI researchers are actively engaged in the MVI program Young MVI was installed, a group of young researchers from ongoing or recently finished MVI projects. President Wouter Boon – assistant professor at Utrecht University – explains the why and what of Young MVI.
On Friday January 19th, the Muntgebouw in Utrecht was filled with the chatter of about 200 people, already active in the field of responsible innovation, or interested to join.
