From MoRRI to SUPER_MoRRI: Monitoring as reflection & learning, NOT representation & control

Posted by Wouter van de Klippe, SUPER_MoRRI project on 10 Apr 2019

This post by Wouter van de Klippe was originally published at the CWTS´s Blog  on March 20th 2019

The MoRRI project had the aim of establishing a monitoring system that measures how, where, and to what extent Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) has become interwoven within European Research practices.

The SUPER_MoRRI project aims to build on this monitoring system through empirical and theoretical work. Currently, SUPER_MoRRI is in its nascent stages, which offers a unique opportunity to reflect on potential improvements to be made from MoRRI.

In this blog post, Wouter van de Klippe aims to provide an impetus to re-conceptualize the function of monitoring throughout the SUPER_MoRRI project.

Two recent scientific publications focused on the RRI Tools project

Posted by RRI Tools on 28 Sep 2017

  • Review of the RRI Tools project at the Journal of Responsible Innovation - by Christopher Groves

ABSTRACT - The RRI Tools project, funded under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (2007–2013), is an important attempt to translate key guiding principles of responsible research and innovation (RRI) into a compendium of best practices to assist researchers and practitioners. It has set up a valuable database of practical and other reference resources, instigated an EU-wide community of practice, and begun rolling out training in RRI. By placing engagement at the heart of the RRI endeavour, it raises again important questions relating to how engagement is done and how it relates to the broader processes and institutional contexts in which innovation happens

Christopher Groves is researcher in Social Sciences at Cardiff University

  • Responsible Research and Innovation. How to Put Gender Equality into Practice? - by Justyna Wojniak

ABSTRACT - ​This paper discusses a project devoted to the concept of responsibility in the field of research and innovation, which has been initiated by the European Commission in recent years [the RRI Tools project]. The key element of this project is performing science with society and for society, which includes wide cooperation with different societal actors, representing researchers, business, civil society and policy makers. An important part of this concept is diversity and gender equality in the research and innovation sector. These issues are also perceived as instruments of shaping correct relationship between science and society. The paper presents the main initiatives under the Responsible Research and Innovation project and selected good practices introduced by research institutions aimed at overcoming gender imbalance in the scientific profession within the European Union.

Justyna Wojniak is proffesor at the Pedagogical University of Cracow and board member of the Foundation “Women Scienctists – Polish Women Scientists Network”
