About RI-Lab

Our mission at the Responsible Innovation Lab is to bring together a new interdisciplinary community of researchers and practitioners passionate about creating ‘responsible’ solutions as they innovate in response to emerging challenges and explore new opportunities. We are based at the National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science (CPAS), Australian National University

About Us >

Working Together to Make The Next Genre of Innovations More Responsible

Our research is structured in a series of projects and research themes. These projects are the root structure of the Lab’s community, reaching out to brilliant students, researchers and practitioners and connecting them and their ideas to the challenges of making responsible innovation. The themes ranges from responsible bio-innovation to responsible planning and responsible AI.
