The Blueprint for Change Programme – A Showcase on RRI

Posted by Experimentarium and Athena Institute on 20 Jul 2016

To help to bring RRI to life, the RRI Tools project has identified eight showcases, which are good examples of RRI in practice. We will introduce you to each of these, explaining what it is and why they are good representatives of RRI. At the end of the article, find a testimonial on how you could use the showcase training resource to have a better understanding of RRI, get trained and train others.

The Blueprint for Change Programme is a series of business cases that aim to identify the drivers of shared value creation, measure realised benefits for both society and the organisation, and share this information with stakeholders. One of the cases that was conducted is a case on how Novo Nordisk is working on changing diabetes in Indonesia. This showcase is based on the information and the activities that were developed and conducted in Indonesia.

Scientific evidence about ‘responsible research’

Posted by The International School on Research Impact Assessment on 07 Jul 2016

Let’s go scientific about RRI. Let us question ourselves if there is scientific evidence about the association between ‘responsible research’ (as defined by the 6 pillars) and social impact of research. There is actually something called ‘science of science’, that is, the research on research that may have some answers to this. This discipline seeks scientific evidence on how science works to inform research policy on how to shape research in order to optimise societal impact.

A room full of young and bright minds. Curious questioning eyes focused on the two presenters in front. The presentation starts. A word cannot pass without being reflected upon. Each slide is followed closely. Each aspect of RRI is discussed. Each statement – thoroughly examined and broken down to bits simple enough to know “what’s in it for me?” The RRI concept is indeed stirring up minds.
