Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) Tools Final Conference on “Responsible Research and Innovation in Action – Towards an Open Science and Innovation system that tackles the societal challenges of our world”, and the Ceremony of the European Foundations Award for Responsible Research and Innovation is scheduled to be held on November 21st & 22nd in Brussels.
The RRI Tools project coordinated by “la Caixa” Foundation and carried out by a consortium of 26 partners extending across 30 countries of the European Research Area, was launched with the objective to provide the R&I community with specific tools for the application of RRI and its key issues: public engagement with science, gender equality, open access, ethics and research integrity, and science education.
After three years of work, the RRI Toolkit is online and an ambitious training and advocacy program is running all around Europe.
The RRI Tools Final Conference aims to create the ideal space for discussion and reflection on how to implement RRI and on what is the logic evolution of the concept and policy towards a more open science and innovation system.
As part of the conference, a session on other perspectives similar to RRI from other parts of the world: Going global: responsibility perspectives outside Europe is also scheduled on Tuesday 22nd.
