Insights from global institutional experiments in RRI



21 & 21 June 2019 - Le Plaza, Brussels 

In the drive for more sustainable futures, research and innovation actors are increasingly called upon to anticipate and respond to expectations and concerns from citizens and policy, industry and a variety of other stakeholders. The cultivation of such processes and approaches is now firmly part of policy initiatives, such as Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).

This joint conference by the EU-funded projects NUCLEUS and RRI-Practice explores the pathways that institutions may follow towards being more socially responsive: What can research-performing organisations learn from the projects’ institutional RRI experiments (‘Practical Pathways’)? And how can research policy incentivise stakeholders to contribute to more responsive science and innovation systems (‘Policy Pathways’)?

With several months remaining to the wind-up of the NUCLEUS project, team members met at the HSRW campus in Kleve, Germany (17-18th April) for the final Embedded Nuclei workshop. The workshop provided an opportunity for all institutional representatives to share their progress, learnings and suggestions for implementation of RRI in their respective cultural and geographic contexts.
Final reporting and the translation of the project findings to tangible products was also discussed. The final Open Space session provided an opportunity for team members to reflect on the project – its goal and its legacy.
The team are now working towards consideration of final recommendations, which will be delivered during the upcoming joint NUCLEUS and RRI-Practice conference. Please view the draft program of speakers and activities here. Registrations are open and free.

We look forward to seeing you in Brussels.
