Responsive Science is a way of conducting research that invites openness and community involvement from the earliest stages of each project. Real-time interaction between scientists, citizens, and broader communities allows questions and concerns to be identified before experiments are performed, fosters open discussion, and encourages research studies and new technologies to be redesigned in response to societal feedback.
Transparency and societal accountability are critical for any research that involves the shared environment. Responsive Science currently focuses on applied ecological research, including gene drive systems for altering wild populations. Discussions are facilitated by PubPub, a unique collaborative tool for sharing and evaluating research, and our dedicated team.
Increasingly powerful technologies demand greater wisdom. Share your thoughts on early stage projects to shape a better future for society and the natural world.
