This WP focuses on the governance of science, particularly it is concerned with open science as open innovation. It looks at concrete applications, the products of software-based research. The questions guiding WP1 are: How are public needs and values to be integrated in technoscientific designs? And how should that integration contribute to more responsible (in the sense of socially robust) innovation processes?
This WP combines approaches from STS, ethics and political theory, bringing these perspectives together through qualitative fieldwork.
