The workshop “Enhancing ethics and economics in aquaculture using solutions based on IoT and digital automation” has the mission to start the analysis of the potential connections between marine RRI knowledge and digital automation technologies applied by the industry4.0 processes. Its main scope is to build a view to co-constructing a common understanding of opportunities for the adoption of RRI approach in the context of shared industry-food-marine R&D and policies. Aquaculture is the world’s fastest growing food industry and it has the responsibility to face the growing global population feeding. However, it entails diseases and marine pollution. Developing innovative and sustainable food sources is a key priority for Europe and a key-issue in the marine sector with a huge social impact. The 4.0 approach is started to being applied in large scale to the marine sector: IoT, blockchain and big data technologies, help improve security, fish health status, food quality and traceability and environmental safety. What about overall economy, the level of access to food, the processes decreasing the harmful chemicals in the water, and what about matching with other kind of agro-food productions? This is a challenge and we’re convinced it should be approached by including elements and methods of Responsible Research and Innovation, ensuring the fulfilment of the needs and expectations of society. You are invited to support us with your knowledge, experience and perspectives, to outline some guidelines of mutual research between the marine and the Industry 4.0 sectors.
Programma: 04 e 05 Maggio 2019, a Molfetta (BA) presso la Chiesa della Morte, proiezione della raccolta di foto scattate da cittadini lungo la costa delle provice pugliesi BA e BAT. Se vuoi partecipare alla mostra collettiva, inviaci il tuo nome, la tua professione, un tuo primo piano e massimo 5 foto che hai scattato al Mare, all'indirizzo firstname.lastname@example.org entro il 25 aprile 2019. Al termine della mostra la raccolta foto sarà lanciata su youtube. L'intento della mostra è mettere in relazione la poliedricità della cittadinza e la percezione collettiva del nostro rapporto con il Mare. Unisciti a noi!
The MARINA RRI Final conference will be held on 12- 13 March 2019, hosted by Nausicaa Sea Centre in Boulogne Sur Mer, France. Call for papers is now open! The overall aim of the MARINA RRI Final Conference is to stimulate the debate on the marine challenges within the RRI community, which involves scientists and societal actors working together during the whole research and innovation process, with the common goals of aligning both the process and its outcomes with the values, needs and expectations of the society and integrating citizens visions, needs and desires into science and innovation. The concept of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) is part of the Europe 2020 strategy. Its vision is to promote stronger collaboration among scientists from different disciplines, societal actors, citizens and policy makers in order to achieve a wider dimension of science and innovation and enhance the role of society in dealing with its challenges. In fact, there are still many barriers in public organizations and research institutions which impede a complete implementation of the RRI framework, like lack of public engagement, poor science education, ethics and governance. Participants are expected to contribute submitting papers that describe experiences, case studies, outcomes from projects related to the marine domain and how RRI may allow acknowledging, to anticipate and assess implications connected to societal expectations and fostering the design of inclusive and sustainable research and innovation. In particular, the conference will cover and systematize cases studies and examples from practice developed in several past and running research activities and projects on RRI, where the implementation of RRI dimensions, principles and topics made a difference in the impact of the research and innovation. This portfolio of experiences will also include examples of guidelines, approaches and good practices dealing with different aspects of RRI and marine challenges.
