Tim Dassler - AFINO
As a researcher in gene technology, environment and society in NORCE, working on ethical categories of risk assessment and responsible research and innovation, I believe that effective research is based on open communication, mutual trust, liberty through responsibility, the sharing of knowledge and know-how, and care for human flourishing.
My studies in politics, economics, psychology, philosophy and education have led to an authentic enthusiasm for Care Ethics and Care Politics. In every crisis there are opportunities for development, change and creation. If we manage to seize these opportunities, we will step by step build a better world and sustainable future for all.
My goal as a researcher is being an active part in creative processes, together with other people. Thus, I hope to be able to contribute to AFINO’s overarching aims of creating common learning arenas for RRI in Norway, broadening our perspectives on RRI, and creating effective teaching and learning tools for researchers, businesses, politicians and institutions alike.
