Xplore Health Programme – bridging the gap between RRI and education

Posted by Xplore, European Schoolnet, IrsiCaixa and Ellinogermaniki Agogi on 03 Oct 2016

To help 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.

As stated in the European Commission document of Science With and for Society: “investing in making scientific and research careers more attractive for young people improves their culture, prepares them to act as well-informed citizens and equips them with the necessary knowledge and skills to match the current and future labour market needs“. How should scientific and research careers be made attractive for young people? How do we need to prepare our future generations to be disposed and prepared to participate in R&I and in R&I decision-making?

Currently, it is more a concern and concept used by the academia and generally unknown at schools in 24 out of the 30 countries observed.
