Work Package 2:

Dialogue and participation

  • Deliverable 2.1: Report (handbook) of participatory processes

    Task Leader: TRI

    • Report (handbook) of participatory processes

      Defining features and Views on “Mutual learning and Mobilisation". This deliverable comprises a handbook on participatory processes (Section I) and empirical insights into the landscape of existing Mutual Mobilisation and Learning (MML) projects, ethics-related related projects and other initiatives regarding their incorporation of and/or interaction with other stakeholders (Section II). The handbook outlines guidelines for establishing a participatory approach with a particular focus on criteria for selecting appropriate participatory techniques. Section II of the deliverable provides added value to the handbook by offering empirical insights into experiences with and plans for participatory processes for MML projects, ethics-related projects and other innovation-related activities.

  • Deliverable 2.2: Stakeholder analysis and contact list

    Task Leader: TRI

    • Stakeholder analysis and contact list

      This deliverable is the result of work on Task 2.2 “Non-assessor stakeholder analysis and SATORI project contact list”. As the deliverable is confidential, we offer here a public version of the non-assessor analysis (Section I of the original deliverable). This analysis presents the result of a stakeholder analysis of “non-assessors” relevant to the SATORI project, i. e. those stakeholders that are not usually involved in setting ethics assessment guidelines or are involved in ethical review of research projects, but nevertheless have a stake in ethics assessment of research and innovation. The introduction elaborates on the importance of ethics assessment within the notion of “Responsible Research and Innovation” and taking into account the European Union’s ambition to create sustainable growth, inclusive prosperity and address societal challenges. Given the significance of research and innovation for society, it would be beneficial for the views of a wide range of stakeholders to be included in considerations of ethics assessment.

  • Deliverable 2.3: Assessment of capacity building and training needs in ethics assessment

    Task Leader: EUSJA

    • Report on the assessment of capacity building and training needs in ethics assessment

      The aim of the SATORI project is to build a common framework for ethics assessment of research and innovation in Europe. In report D1.1 of the project, the state of the art of ethics assessment was analysed by means of a large number of semi-structured interviews with formal assessors (members of ethics committees, ethicists, people involved in corporate social responsibility assessment and planning, etc.) and non-formal assessors (civil society organisations, interest groups, science journalists etc.). The interviews were also focused on the training and capacity building needs expressed by the interviewees, collecting their preferences and suggestions. In the current report, data obtained with by-hand coding of the interviews were analysed and integrated with a review of the existing literature on the theoretical basis of capacity building, with the aim to identify the most appropriate model for capacity building activities in ethics assessment. A three-level approach to capacity building tackling individual, organisational and societal/transnational weaknesses was identified as suitable for future training. An online systematic search of the existing training programs in ethics assessment was performed with the aim to identify useful tools (such as ethical matrices, case-history exercises and others) for the future involvement of all the stakeholders. Formal and informal ethics assessors were identified as possible targets for future capacity building activities and participatory processes.
