Programme for Applied Ethics (PAE)

– Stimulate ethical reflection in research and education at NTNU


The Third ELSA Norway Conference

MS FinmarkTopic: When does ELSA/RRI research succeed?

ELSA Norway is a project financed by the Research Council of Norway to enhance cooperation between ELSA researchers and serve as a forum for information and discussion within the field. ELSA research in Norway has a fairly long history, the larger part coinciding with the existence of two ELSA RCN research programs (2002-2014) now extended into SAMANSVAR (2015-2024) presented under the heading of RRI (Responsible Research and Innovation) following international trends.

The call for the third ELSA Norway conference is now open. The ELSA Norway conferences showcase different ways of doing ELSA/RRI. We first of all encourage participants of the conference to present their research outcomes.  This allows for comparative scrutiny of ELSA achievements and what ELSA/RRI researchers find worth doing. At this third conference we more specifically ask the question: When do ELSA/RRI research succeed? 

The conference takes place at Hurtigruta MS Finnmarken, from Trondheim to Tromsø, 11-13 April 2016. Deadline for registration and abstract submission is 1. March. The conference has open, but ELSA Norway can only economically support a limited number of persons.
