Nausicaá, National Sea Centre in France, will host an international conference about Responsible Research, Innovation, Science and Society on 12-13 March 2019 in the framework of the MARINA project funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union.

The overall aim of the MARINA conference and project is to stimulate the debate on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), Blue Growth, marine and societal challenges, on how to encourage scientists and societal actors to work together during the whole research and innovation process, and ensure that marine resources are managed in a sustainable way.

Participants of the conference are expected to contribute to the debate by submitting papers that describe experience, case studies, outcomes of projects or research activities related to the marine domain and where the implementation of the RRI or “Blue Society” concepts made a difference in the impact on the research, innovation and European society.

The deadline for paper submission is 15th February 2019. To submit your paper click here: EasyChair.: https://easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?key=84141927.d8KPQGMbRglu2mF5
