3 Scientific Knowledge and societal issues - Finance, fisheries, agro industry,… - Food (dioxin,…) - Medical (growth hormones, contaminated blood, fertility,…), - Environment (climate, energy, biodiversity, ozone,…), - Future generations (eugenics, enhancement, doping, reproduction, animals,…) - Life appropriation, identity thefts, privacy, insurances,… - etc… Vancouver (CA)

4 SiS: A philosophical issue Responsability: Hans Jonas Values and Norms: Jean-Marc Ferry The three worlds: Karl Popper Norms and life: Georges Canguilhem Paul Ricoeur, Hannah Arendt, etc… CRÊPE – Cooperative Research on Environmental Problems in Europe What Knowledge for Sustainable Agriculture? 08/06/2010, Brussels (BE) The Science in Society Rationale behind

5 Is it sound and safe? Is it ethical? Are citizens fundamental rights guaranteed? Will it remain so in the future?

6 CRÊPE – Cooperative Research on Environmental Problems in Europe What Knowledge for Sustainable Agriculture? 08/06/2010, Brussels (BE) The Science in Society Rationale behind A growing organised resistance Is progress machine jamming? Knowledge societies: What kind of governance? What place for values? How to build norms?

7 Focusing on SiS drivers Focusing on relationships between SiS drivers Researchers Policy makers Civil society Producers CRÊPE – Cooperative Research on Environmental Problems in Europe What Knowledge for Sustainable Agriculture? 08/06/2010, Brussels (BE) The Science in Society Rationale behind

8 Lessons from governance case studies: - Partial in scientific advice, Insufficient in risk assessment, Insufficient in communication and dialogue - Lack of inclusiveness in framing issues and lack of sense of urgency Overall: a failure to incorporate diverse values / norms in a common and shared vision

9 Civil society Industry CompetitionSolidarity CRÊPE – Cooperative Research on Environmental Problems in Europe What Knowledge for Sustainable Agriculture? 08/06/2010, Brussels (BE) The Science in Society Rationale behind Towards a renewed Governance Framework? Knowledge Societies will value their parents values

14 CRÊPE – Cooperative Research on Environmental Problems in Europe What Knowledge for Sustainable Agriculture? 08/06/2010, Brussels (BE) The Science in Society Rationale behind CRÊPE May 2008 – June 2010 « …The project will empower and resource CSOs to participate in co-operative research on various agri- environmental issues. These studies include: research priorities, innovation narratives, agro-fuel production, participation in agrobiotech issues, water scarcity and local agri-food networks. »

16 Challenges ahead for Science in Society - Structuring relationships between SiS drivers (e.g. EC MMLs, 2009) - Revisiting the notion of progress (e.g. EC GDP and beyond*, Stiglitz report, 2009) - Rewriting hard and soft S&T related rules (e.g. EC Nanotechnologies Code of Conduct, 2008, 2010) *
