The Virtual Institute for Responsible Innovation (VIRI) is an international network of 28 academic and institutional partners created to accelerate the formation of a community of scholars and practitioners who, despite divides in geography and political culture, will create a common concept of responsible innovation for research, training and outreach, contributing to the governance of emerging technologies.

Throughout the coming academic year, early career researchers from many VIRI partner sites will have an opportunity to engage with ASU faculty and students and present their research work to the ASU community.
