Proposals from the Social Monitoring of Science Forum

by Frédéric Piguet -

Proposal Paper from the Social Monitoring of Scientific Production Systems workshop. Provisional text for the work of the Society of Scientists during the World Assembly at Lille in 2001.


"Scientists cannot be satisfied with producing knowledge and applications. They must also evaluate the impacts of their findings and accept responsibility for their possible uses" (Alain Ruellan, May 2000).

On the basis of this observation, the team of the "Social Monitoring of Science" workshop of the Alliance for a Responsible, Plural and United world reflected on the role of the scientific community vis-à-vis ethical, social, cultural, economic, and health problems.

This document summarizes the group's debates and the proposals resulting from them. Their considerations end with a list of basic questions and examples of projects underway, and actions to be organized.
