Policy Agendas

  • Ethics
    Ethics

    Focuses on (1) research integrity: the prevention of unacceptable research and research practices; and (2) science and society: the ethical acceptability of scientific and technological developments.

  • Gender Equality
    Gender Equality

    Gender equality in RRI is about promoting gender balanced teams, ensuring gender balance in decision-making bodies, and considering always the gender dimension in R&I to improve the quality and social relevance of the results

  • Governance
    Governance

    To reach futures that are both acceptable and desirable, governance arrangements have to (1) be robust and sufficiently adaptable to the unpredictable development of research and innovation (de facto governance); (2) be familiar enough to align with existing practices in research and innovation; (3) share responsibility and accountability among a large variety of actors and provide governance instruments to actually foster this shared responsibility.

  • Open Access
    Open Access

    Addresses issues of accessibility to and ownership of scientific information. Free and earlier access to scientific work might improve the quality of scientific research and facilitate fast innovation, constructive collaborations among peers and productive dialogue with civil society.

  • Public Engagement

    The process of R&I is collaborative and multi actor: all societal actors (researchers, citizens, policymakers, industry, educators, etc.) work together during the whole research and innovation process in order to align its outcomes to the values, needs and expectations of European society.

  • Science Education
    Science Education

    Focuses on (1) enhancing the current education process to better equip citizens with the necessary knowledge and skills so they can participate in research and innovation debates; and (2) increasing the number of researchers (promote scientific vocations).
