ABIS – The Academy of Business in Society participated, upon invitation, in an European Union – funded research proposal led by the University of Manchester and co-ordinated by Professor Jakob Edler of the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research.
The proposal "Towards a Responsible Research and Innovation System" (ToRRIS) responded to a call from the European Commission under the Horizon2020 framework: developing governance for the advancement of Responsible Research and Innovation.
