Including Society in the Digitisation of Europe - Help Us Make Policies That Promote Responsible ICT

In the final policy workshop of the Horizon 2020 project HubIT, we will be exploring the future of RRI in ICT. We invite the participants not only to listen to presentations by the European Commission and experienced project coordinators, but also to help us formulate our policy recommendations, by sharing and discussing their experiences and views with the other participants.
