"I would highly recommend the course to anyone doing a PhD or starting a career in research.”
“The course provided an honest and open space to explore both the positive and negative implications of scientific research. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the different case studies, which were insightful and really opened my eyes to our ethical and social responsibilities as scientists. I intend to use my new understanding of responsible innovation when making future career decisions and planning new research projects, so that my work can hopefully be of greater benefit to society. I would highly recommend the course to anyone doing a PhD or starting a career in research.”

"I now understand better the importance of ethical research and believe in taking ownership of my research decision."
“Responsible Innovation has allowed me to think beyond my day-to-day research area. I now understand better the importance of ethical research and believe in taking ownership of my research decision. The case studies presented has allowed me to think more critically of what is happening around us in a larger picture and how I should act as a responsible innovator.”

"It was very interesting to work through the challenges and engage in a discussion with my peers."
““I found the Responsible Innovation course to be thought provoking and inspiring. It got me to think about aspects that I had not considered about my research and about my responsibilities as a researcher. It was very interesting to work through the challenges and engage in a discussion with my peers. Moving forward, I am very keen on undertaking my research with responsible innovation as a guiding principle. I believe that I can structure my research using responsible innovation principles as the backbone.”
Juliana, UCL Department of Security and Crime Science.
"The FutureLearn platform was user-friendly and had great features..."
“"I thoroughly enjoyed this learning experience, the course’s learning outcomes were thought-provoking, had logical order and the practise of applying them to my day-to-day research was impactful. Following completion of the course I endeavour to continue enhancing and sharing my knowledge on responsible innovation/research. The FutureLearn platform was user-friendly and had great features that allowed you to keep track of your progress and set easy and manageable goals for task completion.”
