- IRRESISTIBLE– Design activities that foster the involvement of students and the public in the process of RRI. The consortium aims to raise awareness on RRI by increasing pupils’ content knowledge about research.
- ENGAGE2020 (http://engage2020.eu/)
The goal of Engage2020 is to increase the use of engagement methods and policies by mapping what is practiced and spreading awareness of the opportunities amongst researchers, policymakers and other interested parties.
The GREAT project aims to develop an empirically based and theoretically sound model of the role of responsible research and innovation governance and investigate the characteristics of responsible practices.
The PERARES project aims to strengthen public engagement in research by involving researchers and Civil Society Organisations in the formulation of research agendas and the research process.
The ProGReSS project aims to advocate a European normative model for RRI globally, using constitutional values as a driver to inform societal desirability.
- CONSIDER– The project dealt with the the participation of civil society organisations in the governance of research.
- MoRRI– The project’s objective is to provide scientific evidence, data, analysis and policy intelligence to support directly the Directorate General for Research and Innovation’s (DG-RTD) research funding activities and policy-making activities in relation with RRI.
- Ark of Inquiry– The project aims to foster RRI by teaching pupils core inquiry skills needed to evaluate the credibility and consequences of scientific research and by offering opportunities for pupils to engage with different societal actors involved in the research and innovation process.
