Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) encourages societal actors (researchers, policy-makers, businesses, and citizens, etc.) to work together during the whole research and innovation (R&I) process to better align R&I and its outcomes with the values, needs and expectations of society. In practice, it means taking action in the five following domains: public engagement with science, science education, gender equality, ethics and research integrity, and open access/data. Its correct application though demands for a deep understanding of the underlying values to where those issues are anchored to. RRI is a cross-cutting issue within Horizon 2020.
This workshop will have a light focus on the public engagement aspect of the RRI agenda. The agenda will cover the basic concepts and approach of RRI, discussions on obstacles and motivations and the RRI toolkit before moving into very practical topics such as setting up a participatory research agenda and including RRI principles in funding calls. The agenda will finish with three concrete case studies of RRI tools being used in health research, social sciences and public engagement.
