ReDig - Responsibility as an Integral Component of Digital Research Practices in Bio-and Nanotechnology

An increasing adoption of digital tools and infrastructures for research is occurring within a number of scientific fields. Combined with classic experimental methods, digital software is increasingly used to model and design scientific objects. Software and digital platforms are used for making and matching data as well as to store and share them. This project addresses the issue of how responsibility should be performed as an integral component of digital research practices in nano and biotechnology.

The project will focus on digital practices of design, modelling and data sharing as they are performed in specific projects in those research fields. After analyzing these practices, it will turn the focus to responsibility in digital research and innovation practices by focusing on three themes:

  • Open science
  • Design
  • Public good
