Societal issues

Each of our priority challenge themes faces questions relating to ethics, conduct and public engagement, which arise from the interaction of upstream research with society at large.

In this Delivery Plan period we will:

  • Where appropriate, extend our involvement of the public in shaping research strategy through dialogue with the public.
  • Continue embedding and accelerating the use of such approaches to contextualise sensitive research, and to generate researchers' awareness of these tools so they can improve their ideas while retaining the trust of society.
