(Feb 5, 2021)
CITRIS and the RRBM Network
We are very pleased to welcome the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and the Responsible Research in Business and Management (RRBM) network as Institutional Affiliates.
The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and the Banatao Institute is a University of California research center focused on creating IT solutions that generate social and economic benefits for everyone. CITRIS leverages the research strengths of University of California campuses at Berkeley, Davis, Merced, and Santa Cruz and operates within the greater ecosystem of the University and the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of Silicon Valley. CITRIS strengthens bridges between world-class laboratory research, state and national policymakers, and companies and startups, representing a bold and exciting vision that engages one of the world’s top university systems to generate social and economic benefits.
The Responsible Research in Business and Management Network is a global grassroots movement led by 24 senior scholars aiming to change the ecosystem of business research to be more useful to society. RRBM’s mission is to solve two main problems: questionable research practices that threaten the credibility of scientific findings and the disconnect between researchers’ priorities and the needs of the communities of practice. RRBM’s work focuses on concrete actions and projects initiated to catalyze key stakeholders – including journal editors, academic association leaders, deans and vice deans, senior scholars, and accreditation agency leaders – to take small but meaningful actions to cause broader ecosystem change.
