SET-DEV project – Science, Ethics and Technological Responsibility in Developing and Emerging Countries

SET-DEV is a European project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), DG RTD, Science in Society, aiming at supporting the research systems and to encourage the socialisation of scientific and technological research in India and Kenya. Within the term of socialisation, the project involves the social dynamics and processes that are part of scientific and technological research, including various operational and cognitive aspects, which in turn include a wide range of cultural and ethical issues. The SET-DEV project is coordinated by the Italian National Research Council (CNR) and participated by a consortium of 11 partners from India, Kenya and Europe.


Minerva is the SET-DEV project communication partner. MINERVA is responsible of the dissemination activities as part of WP 11 and aims at increasing the visibility of the project and its activities, capacity building and trainings, through the management of the Website and the organisation of raising awareness activities in Europe, Africa and India.
