Biography

Dr Justine Lacey leads CSIRO’s Responsible Innovation Initiative; a research program examining the interface between science, technology innovation and the associated ethical, social and legal consequences of new and disruptive science and technologies. This Initiative is aligned with CSIRO’s Future Science Platforms, which aim to develop the early stage science that underpins disruptive innovation and that has the potential to reinvent and create new industries for Australia.

Prior to taking up this role, Justine led a research group of social and economic scientists developing and supporting adaptive solutions for Australian communities and industries. She is trained as a philosopher and her own research has focused on examining the aspects underpinning the minerals industry’s social licence to operate, and how this concept is used in other resource management contexts, such as forestry and agriculture.
