Upcoming Events
17 Jun
11:30 - 14:00 Design for Values Research Funding Workshop 17 June
Venue: Building 58 Applied Sciences (AS South building) A2.010 Kronigzaal

You are all cordially invited by the Delft Design for Values institute and the I&IC funding team to join our ‘lessons learned in grant applications workshop’. We are inviting you directly by email because your experience would provide valuable input to this workshop, and we of course - we also hope it brings value to you. During the workshop we will be looking for both learnings and common interests, which may hopefully also result in the identification of opportunities for joint applications. We will specifically explore directions and common interest for a collaboration for the upcoming NWO KIC call Values in Transition .

We firmly believe that joint applications and projects with people from different backgrounds and disciplines will bring most value and will in the end also strengthen the positioning of the institute. We therefore very much encourage any initiative that may follow from this workshop, and we will therefor also support those where possible.

You can register here and find the programme and download the outlook invitation here.
12:30 - 13:30 ETI- lunch seminar -- On the influences and relationships among RRI activities observed in Technological Centres. A comparative analysis between Spanish and Dutch experts.-- Monica Garcia Melon
In this research study, we propose a detailed analysis of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) activities using the Decision-Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) technique, a well-established Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) method. Leveraging our extensive experience with DEMATEL, we aim to involve a group of RRI specialists, both from the Spanish and the Dutch Academia, to provide the necessary judgments for an in-depth analysis of these activities.

The primary objective is to accurately assess the interrelationships and causalities among the RRI activities, enhancing our understanding of their impact and significance. By analyzing the DEMATEL results, we intend to derive actionable insights, highlighting direct and indirect influences, identifying key drivers and barriers, and mapping out causal relationships. This analysis will aid in prioritizing activities, improving strategic decision-making, and advancing the field of RRI with data-driven recommendations.

In the seminar preliminary results will be presented.

bio of Monica Melon
I am a Full Professor at the UPV and I have been teaching at the UPV School of Industrial Engineering since 1998. I am a senior researcher at the INGENIO research institute (CSIC-UPV).
My main line of research focuses on the application of the multi-criteria decision techniques to create indicators that help evaluation and decision-making in participatory processes. Within this field of research, my two main lines of work are: (i) Participatory Decision Making, (ii) Application of Multi-Criteria Models to assess social responsibility and environmental sustainability of policies and organisations.
I lead a research group, I have promoted a consolidated line of work that has generated an important scientific production in high quality journals, obtained several research and knowledge transfer projects with public and private funding and consolidated the scientific career of several researchers. Since 2012, I have carried out a total of 4 teaching internships, 5 research internships, at the University of Parthenope (IT) (2013). University of Carlow (USA) and Fraunhoffer ISI, Karlsruhe, (D) (2021, 2022) and currently at TU Delft (2024).
