The recruitment strategies, the format of the presentations, and so on of the two summer schools are presented. The authors argue that as the 'responsible innovation' agenda gains traction among policy makers, societal actors and academics, education initiatives such as the TA summer school can have an important role to play in shaping understandings of this new form of governance.
