The HEIRRI Training Programmes, available on the GUNi website!


Teaching and learning Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in Universities and Higher Education Institutions (HEI)

The HEIRRI Training Programmes and formative materials designed for different educational levels (bachelor’s, master’s, PhD, MOOC, Summer schools, train-the-trainer, secondary school teachers), mainly based on innovative and participative methodologies (following a “Problem-based learning” approach) and presented in multimedia formats, are now available on the GUNi website > Resources for teachers and researchers.

Professors, university authorities, researchers, managers, politicians and all other people interested in higher education are encouraged to explore the HEIRRI resources, adapt them to their contexts, edit them freely, try them out and integrate them in their teaching practices.

These resources give higher education institutions the tools to strengthen their researchers’ and innovators’ capacity for anticipation, reflexivity and engagement; aiming to train citizens and not just only highly skilled workers.

The Booklet “Teaching and learning RRI” presents the HEIRRI teaching resources and explains how to use them in the endeavour of teaching Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in universities and higher education institutions (HEI).
