Gathering RRI & RRI learning practices: the HEIRRI database is now online!

Posted by HEIRRI on 03 Nov 2016

The new database of the HEIRRI project is now published online and available for everyone interested in RRI and RRI learning! The database compiles 23 exemplary cases related to RRI and RRI learning in higher education institutions, such as EU projects, different teaching/pedagogical approaches, programmes, courses, a policy document and a report.

The selection of the cases for this database was made based on the evidence collected on the HEIRRI State of the Art Review, which engaged a variety of actors involved in RRI from a teaching and learning context, and a scanning of RRI-related EU projects, policy documents, academic papers, and more. Presentations and activities at the 1st HEIRRI Conference, hosted in Barcelona on March 18th 2016, were considered as part of the review as well.

The database is already available on Open Access in the project’s blog and it will be soon integrated into the current RRI Tools web platform, together with other inspiring practices and initiatives related to RRI.

We encourage you to discover these 23 exemplary cases related to RRI being taught, learnt and integrated into Higher Education Institutions!

You can download the document here. Among others, some of the initiatives chosen for the database are the FOSTER project (Facilitate Open Science Training for European Research), the EnRRICH project (Enhancing Responsible Research and Innovation through Curricula in Higher Education), the synthesis lectures ‘Engineers, Technology and Society’ (University of Western Australia), the subject “Ethics in Life Sciences” (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) or the Canadian Community-University Research Alliances (CURA). Explore the database to find out the rest!
