Advances in genomics science have huge potential for patient outcomes. But with this momentum comes an ethical tension around the rights of patients to own their data. New research by DR YUWAN MALAKAR and colleagues explores perceptions of health professionals around this issue.

With the hydrogen industry still in the early stages of development, community acceptance will be crucial to whether it succeeds. A new report examines public attitudes around not just how hydrogen is used, but also its production, storage and transport.

As Australia ramps up efforts to build a thriving commercial quantum industry, GABI SKOFF is investigating the role that responsible innovation may or may not be playing in this emerging innovation ecosystem.

We've conducted a benchmark study surveying over 4,000 Australians to measure public perceptions of responsible innovation in Australia.

We spoke to the RI FSP's Cara Stitzlein to get across the program at this year's 'Something Digital' festival.

Quantum computing is developing rapidly with government and business investment reaching $35.5 billion across a range of quantum technologies globally. But how do we prepare for the societal-scale transformation that will be brought about by a technology that has not yet reached maturity?

Can embedding social science in new technology development drive more socially responsible outcomes? We chat to a researcher who has spent the last 18 months working alongside systems biology researchers. Meet JOHN NOEL M. VIA√ĎA

Over the last few years the tech community has seen a flux of regulations and principles for the creation of responsible artificial intelligence (AI) come online. QINGHUA LU and colleagues have set out to transition these principles from theory to practice. They're building guidelines that will provide concrete, reusable advice for developers, technologists, management, and regulators.

The modern researcher tends to need to be good at some form of cross discipline integration of research and development practice. But what of the integration of future science agendas as they are emerging? Does this require new ways of collaborating with researchers and research stakeholders? SIMON FIELKE and EMMA JAKKU report
