RRI legacy in Bulgaria: pay it forward

Posted by Ruse Chamber of Commerce and Industry on 21 Dec 2016

RRI Tools as a project is coming to an end, as all other good things do, but partnerships will endure beyond the project lifetime and the RRI Community in Bulgaria will continue to grow. And this is precisely what happened at the last training session organized by the Bulgarian-Romanian RRI hub on 19 December in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The name of the event was “RRI legacy in Bulgaria - pay it forward”. Leaving a legacy means you entrust a dear thing to the secure hands of its successor. That is why we chose to leave RRI as a legacy to the oldest higher education institution in Bulgaria - Sofia University, St Kliment Ohridski, educating the future scientists, engineers, policy makers - citizens.

Invited by the Faculty of mathematics and informatics to organize a training session on the RRI Toolkit, we have established a promising partnership in order to collaborate and cooperate in bringing science closer to the society in Bulgaria.

Together with professors, lecturers and assistants, we have dived deep into RRI waters to discover a wealth of RRI tools gathered on the platform www.rri-tools.eu.

The RRI Tools leaflet is available in Bulgarian on RRI Tools media room.

RRI in practice for schools: A handbook for teachers

Posted by European Schoolnet on 20 Dec 2016

The readers of this blog will agree on that the integration of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) principles in educative contexts is certainly beneficial for students, as it supports them - among others - in the development of critical, creative and open-minded thinking and furthers cooperative learning aptitudes. Moreover, it upholds transversal educational frameworks that can benefit collaborative planning in school activities and promotes the introduction of multidisciplinary learning exercises in the classroom.

In that manner, it is essential to construct principles that will support the implementation of RRI in academic teaching and learning activities, both at primary and secondary level. Particularly, it is recommended that educators consider applying continuous self-reflection processes, to determine how RRI-oriented their practices are. 

Along these lines, European Schoolnet has developed an educational handbook entitled “RRI in practice for schools. Handbook for teachers” with the aim of helping educators to develop and implement RRI practices in the classroom as well as to include self-reflection processes in their everyday practices.
