Promoting RRI across the UK ICT Research Community
Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) aims to ensure the sustainability, acceptability and desirability of research processes and outputs. ORBIT provides training, consultancy and other RRI services to both university and industry research and innovation teams to help ensure that RRI principles are embedded in development from the earliest possible point.
The ORBIT Journal publishes original research and contributions in the area of responsible research and innovation in ICT.
ORBIT offers a range of training courses for researchers, innovators and others interested in responsible research and innovation.
De Montfort and Oxford Universities have pleasure in announcing that the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council have agreed to provide the necessary funding to create a new organisation to deliver Responsible Research and Innovation services. This new entity will be called ORBIT, and will provide information and services to the ICT research and development communities to support them in undertaking their work responsibly. It will be a community resource allowing the exchange of information, networking and reflection on ICT research. By helping research stakeholders harness their creativity and imagination, it will contribute to better research processes and outcomes, thus ensuring that ICT research and innovation are socially desirable and acceptable.
