Event Description

This two day workshop invites humanists, artists and scientists to reflect on ideas and practices of responsibility, and their role in research, innovation and art practices.

Academic research is usually judged by standards of epistemic excellence, that is, by its ability to raise and answer questions deemed relevant for discipline-specific research programmes. However research and innovation are now increasingly expected to consider their standing and responses to identified “grand societal challenges” such as climate change, sustainability, ageing societies or social inclusion. Often this kind of impetus gets translated into funding incentives coupled with impact measures and assessment processes, following a kind of top-down, policy-driven pathway.

In this workshop we will explore interrelations between art, the humanities and science and between scientific logos, ethos and pathos to open up the question of what it means to do responsible research and innovation across fields. Our questions include:


  • How can we understand “research”, “innovation” and “responsibility” from humanistic, scientific and artistic perspectives?

  • Is there such a thing as scientific/artistic/humanistic research responsibility? What can we learn from each other?

  • Is it productive to think of responsibility (or irresponsibility) as an ability? If so, could and should this be trained and how?

  • How can we or do we experience and/or measure response-abilities in action?


The two-day event invites lectures, workshops and situations with an aim to tackle questions around researcher identities and response-abilities. We welcome contributions from the arts, sciences and the humanities as well as multi-disciplinary projects.
