Dismantling boundaries between STS and Design | Milano, November 20, 2019

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to participate in an upcoming workshop
"Dismantling boundaries between STS and Design: A workshop on RRI and
assessment practices in co-creation landscapes
", on November 20, 2019
at Politecnico di Milano, Italy. **

Venue: Laboratorio Colore (Department of Design) Campus Bovisa Ed. B4,
Via Candiani 72, Milano

The development and introduction of new technologies within our
turbulent society is crucial in solving and shaping challenges in equal
measure. In this regard, the concept of co-creation has been recently
introduced in diverse fields as a way to engage lay people and
stakeholders in the ideation, implementation and assessment of
innovative solutions to societal challenges, by embracing a
sensitiveness towards their (ethical) acceptability, sustainability and
societal desirability. As pointed out by scholars engaged in Science &
Technology Studies and design, co-creation has the potentiality to
become a novel constitutive driver for performing Responsible Research
and Innovation (RRI), with the overall expectation of increasing the
societal value of science and technology, not only by striving to manage
unwanted consequences.

The workshop, by offering the opportunity to STS and design
international scholars to interact with practitioners engaged in
co-creation initiatives, will be an opportunity to reflect on emerging
practices of assessing the translation of RRI practice within
co-creation initiatives. Full description of the workshop and more
information in attachment and at this link:

Swierstra (Maastricht University); Alessandro Deserti (Professor of
