Responsible Innovation (NWO-MVI): Funding opportunities and events

There are now as many as five opportunities to obtain funding for MVI research from NWO. One of them is the unique NWO-MVI call Designing for public values in a digital world. The call will be opened this week. The other four possibilities for MVI research lie within specific research calls within the top sectors. The underlying reasons for this are that the importance of MVI is increasingly recognised and there is a growing demand to link responsible innovation research to NWO research calls. To stimulate interdisciplinary collaboration (between humanities, natural sciences and social sciences researchers) matchmaking events will be organized.

Unique Call: Designing for public values in a digital world
This week NWO will publish the unique NWO-MVI Call for Proposals for the research programme Responsible Innovation; Designing for public values in a digital world. This programme is a joint project of NWO-MVI, the municipality of The Hague and the Ministries of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, of Foreign Affairs, of Defence and of Justice & Security. The Call is characterised by the interaction between public values and digital technology. The deadline for submitting the (brief) compulsory pre-proposals is 19 March 2019.
