Cursusdoelen
You are able to prepare and conduct a public debate on the ethical and societal aspects of a specific technological innovation that research contributes to create
 
When you finished this course, you will be able to:
  1. Understand and explain the goals and basic characteristics of responsible research and innovation.
  2. Interview relevant stakeholders, and analyze the transcripts.
  3. Write future scenarios/vignettes which reveal broader impacts that an innovation may bring about.
  4. Conduct a public debate based on the scenarios/vignettes, in cooperation with a group of (4) students.
  5. Write an individual report on the debate which contains recommendations for the scientific research.
  6. Present the recommendations to the researchers and discuss their value for research.
Inhoud
Innovative medical technologies contribute to improving health and prolonging life. History teaches, however, that the public is not always convinced of the merits of all innovative medical technologies. Fierce societal debates over the desirability of cochlear implants, prenatal (genetic) screening, therapeutic genetic modification, or assisted reproductive technology in older women (60+) illustrate that innovations may, and frequently do, raise public controversy.

This course is for those students who are interested in learning how to conduct such societal debates. Seeking debate about the broader societal impacts of technological developments is the primary ambition of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).  It is important for future scientists to know about  it, for research funding institutions increasingly ask scientists to anticipate the broader societal impacts of their research, and assess them at an early stage of research.

The course will train students to prepare, organize and conduct a public debate about a specific research or innovation project which is currently being carried out in the Radboudumc. Students will learn how to conduct interviews with relevant stakeholders of a specific research project, and write a future scenario or vignette which sketches the broader societal impacts of an innovation. This scenario or vignette will be used as input for a public debate and will be integrated into the program that Soeterbeek/Lux organizes around imagination, science and technology.

The results of the debate will be communicated to the research and innovation team in the Radboudumc. Students will therewith experience the relevance of such a debate for a concrete research and innovation team.

Key words
Ethical and societal evaluation, future orientation, public debate, scenario writing, research & innovation.
