Citizens meeting in The Hague

The Hague
On June 19, the Rathenau Institute organised a meeting to discuss problems surrounding precaution and innovation with 40 citizens. The meeting led to lively discussions about questions such as: how important is it as a society to be careful with new technologies? Is it possible to be too careful? And who should be held responsible for guaranteeing precaution?

In spring 2019, the RECIPES project hosted citizen meetings in several countries. Citizens who took part in the meetings had the chance to reflect on issues related to precaution and innovation in relation to research and to provide their ideas and opinions.
