Dates: 8-9 March 2018

Call for Papers
After the extensive work of Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, there has been significant increase in institutional interventions to conserve the natural ecosystems and to restore the loss to the ecosystems, wherever possible, so that the ecosystem services start benefi ting the people, especially the population at the margins. In India, interventions under developmental schemes like MGNREGA and climate adaptation/mitigation schemes are directly contributing to restoration of ecosystems and natural resource base of rural areas. However, the ultimate impact of these schemes on well-being of people is yet to be showcased. This seminar intends to showcase such evidences, if any. Good research papers showing strong evidence that ecosystem restoration have improved or have potential for improving the well-being of people, the enabling/limiting institutions, the cobenefits, etc. can provide valuable policy perspective to attain the important SDG of poverty reduction.

Book Chapter "Responsible Innovation: A New Approach to Address the Theoretical Gaps for Innovating in Emerging E-Mobility Sector" | by Shilpa Mishra & Rajbeer Singh

Responsible Innovation: A New Approach to Address the Theoretical Gaps for Innovating in Emerging E-Mobility Sector
by Shilpa Mishra & Rajbeer Singh
In: Governance and Sustainability of Responsible Research and Innovation Processes. SpringerBriefs in Research and Innovation Governance. Springer, Cham. DOI: 10.1007/978-3-319-73105-6_12
Sustainability along with being an 'after-work' of technology has become more about solving the problems and issues which pave way for a robust approach towards social and technological development. The emerging technologies are promising to fulfil the need of society alongside they have also posed tremendous challenges in the form of new emerging risks, unforeseen impacts, governance, ensuring accountability for results of adoption and sustainability. The existing approaches towards innovation such as NIS, SIS, TIS, sustainable innovation, and transitions are unable to address issues of long-term future impacts and issues of accountability, sustainability, and risks from innovators as well as consumers point of view. The new approach of responsible innovation claims to address the above-mentioned issues through bridging the existing gaps in the theories of innovation. Therefore, this paper focuses on two research questions, how the deliberation and participation enabled adoption of new technology? What are the different values embedded by the e-mobility (e-rickshaw) innovation that shapes it as a responsible innovation? To address these questions a case study "adoption of e-rickshaws in Delhi" has been selected. It was observed that RI approach enables us to understand the process of innovation for emerging technology in mobility area i.e. adoption of e-rickshaw in Delhi. The two dimensions of responsible innovation enable us to understand that how the process of innovation unfolded and how values have been embedded in innovation and the understanding can be used for innovating in newly emerging areas of technology.
