Kornelia Konrad, Arie Rip, Verena Schulze Greiving

Kornelia Konrad is Assistant Professor of Anticipation and Assessment of Emerging Technologies at the University of Twente. She received a master’s degree in sociology, physics and mathematics at the University of Freiburg i.Br. (1997) and her PhD at the Technical University of Darmstadt (2002), where she participated in the Graduate School “Technology and Society”. Before joining the UT she was a researcher at Eawag, a Swiss federal research institute of the ETH domain in Zurich. In her work she studies and aims at enriching the role of anticipation and assessment in socio-technical innovation.|Arie Rip, educated as a chemist and philosopher at the University of Leiden, set up a program of teaching and research in Chemistry and Society in that University in the 1970s. He was Guest Professor of Science Dynamics at the University of Amsterdam (1984 1987) and Professor of Philosophy of Science and Technology at the University of Twente (1987-2006) where he continues after his retirement. He has held a Visiting Professorship at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. He has led a research program on Technology Assessment of Nanotechnology (in the Dutch R&D Consortium NanoNed), and is now involved in the European Commission’s push for Responsible Research and Innovation. Other main research interests include the future of science institutions.|Verena Schulze Greiving is a postdoctoral researcher at the Science, Technology and Policy Studies group (University of Twente). After a bachelor in chemistry, she followed a master in nanotechnology. She received her PhD from the BIOS Lab-on-a-chip group of Prof. Albert van den Berg (UTwente) where she developed a microfluidic device for lipid bilayer experimentation. In her postdoctoral work, she created the CTA toolbox and supports scientists and engineers to implement societal dimensions in their research. Additionally, she is studying the role of RRI in innovation processes for digital health care technologies.
