Building Capacity for Responsible Innovation: Agri-Technology


In collaboration with CSIRO, CEAT will be running a Responsible Innovation pilot course in 2021. Emerging science and technology is creating complex issues for societies and their decision makers. Novel and disruptive innovations and technologies present significant policy, regulatory and ethical challenges, which if left unresolved, could constrain the potential for future science to deliver benefits to society now and in the future.

This course is a joint offering from CSIRO and CEAT and will enable participants to operationalise the ‘responsible innovation’ concept into their practice through practitioner-focused experiential learning that is tailored to the practice of Responsible Innovation in the Australian Agri-Technology innovation sector.

This highly interactive course involves a range of learning experiences including group work, individual reflections, readings, brainstorming and collaboration. The course includes real-world case studies and authentic work-based learning, requiring participants to reflect on Responsible Innovation through the lens of their own work and experiences.

The course requires a 35-hour time commitment. It is staged in four modules over four three-hour synchronous sessions and asynchronous individual and group activities. There is no cost to participants.

Though the course was originally planned for February, we are now aiming to reschedule to a later date (potentially May). We look forward to engaging with those who have already expressed interest in participating and further information and registration details will be available at a later date.

Limited spaces are still available, so if you are interested in participating in the course, or would like more information email [email protected].
