Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) is an important new concept in science and society and one of the cross-cutting themes of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme. Drawing together long-standing perspectives including public participation, ethics and gender in science, RRI has the potential to offer new opportunities but also challenges for everyone involved in science and innovation.
In this session, we discuss the concept of RRI further and, through group work, consider the opportunities and challenges it presents to research managers and examine the resources available through RRI Toolkit that help support those wanting to implement RRI. We will also help participants identify the resources that could be most useful to them, to add any resources that would be useful and to suggest new developments that can support activities in the future.
