Are you interested in lessons learned from RRI-related projects? The H2020 FIT4RRI Project organises its final summit – initially planned as a physical meeting in Rome for spring 2020, but postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The summit will take place virtually next week and will last three days, from 29 September to 01 October. The selected themes of the sessions foreseen range from community involvement under RRI and ethics-driven policy-making to institutional change at the regional level and responsible governance. Policymakers, researchers, and industry representatives are expected to participate as keynote speakers, addressing these complex issues.
FIT4RRI started in 2017. During its life-cycle, the project brought together experts from nine European countries, who analysed and tested how to foster the real uptake of Responsible Research & Innovation and Open Science (OSc). The project strove for institutional transformation and competencies building, with a focus on the six key dimensions of RRI: (i) ethics, (ii) gender equality, (iii) governance, (iv) public engagement, (v) open access, and (vi) science education. The core objective was to mainstream RRI and Open Science governance structures, by articulating them as a comprehensive set of strategies for Research Funding and Performing Organisations. The project adopted a consequential approach, through which it attempted to understand existing barriers, drivers, and values for RRI and OSc uptake; to practically test the outputs produced through 4 co-creation experiments; and to promote and share the tools that have been developed.
So, either you are an RRI practitioner, a researcher, a policymaker, or a citizen, you can discover useful lessons, draw inspirations and delve into the complicated but fascinating world of Responsible Research and Innovation. Registration is open!
