13/11/2017

The 2nd HEIRRI Conference will present the results of nearly three years of project activities designed to promote the integration of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) within the education of scientists, engineers and other professionals involved in the R&D process. It will be held in Vienna on the 27th April 2018.

Call for abstracts is now open! The EC-funded project is seeking for contributions presenting RRI practices, projects, programmes and initiatives that demonstrate the application of RRI in higher education.

 

In the 2nd HEIRRI Conference, this H2020 project welcomes contributions presenting RRI practices, projects, programmes and initiatives that demonstrate the application of RRI in higher education.

Specifically, HEIRRI invites applications that put a spotlight on activities designed to integrate more democratic governance in research and innovation with an emphasis on positive societal impacts along with a promotion and application of a more anticipatory, reflexive, inclusive and responsive approach to research and innovation into higher education curricula. The main emphasis should be placed on specific educational outcomes and achievements. The project is seeking for applications from different countries, context and disciplines, both from the humanities and the natural and social sciences.

HEIRRI (Higher Education Institutions and Responsible Research and Innovation) is a European project funded by the Science for Society H2020 call. HEIRRI is leaded by Pompeu Fabra University and has 9 partners from across Europe representing individual institutions, associations of universities and science institutions. HEIRRI aims to promote Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in higher education institutions, and specifically to provide teaching programmes and materials in different formats for higher education institutions to integrate into the curriculums of their courses. A global scope and expertise on RRI is provided by the HEIRRI consortium. Visit the project's blog for further information www.heirri.eu
