RRI Tools Final Conference

and Ceremony of the European Foundations Award

for Responsible Research and Innovation

Brussels, November 21st - 22nd, 2016

Responsible Research and Innovation IN ACTION
Towards an open science and innovation system that tackles the societal challenges of our world

RRI Tools is an EC funded project launched with the aim to provide the research and innovation community with specific tools for the application of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and its key issues: public engagement with science, gender equality, open access, ethics and research integrity, and science education.
After three years of work, the RRI Toolkit is online and an ambitious training and advocacy program on RRI is running through the RRI Tools Hubs and networks all around Europe.
Once a common understanding has been achieved on what RRI in practice means, there is an active debate on how to implement RRI and on what is the logic evolution of this concept and policy towards a more open science and innovation system. With this spirit, the RRI Tools Final Conference aims to create the ideal space for discussion and reflection.
The conference addresses the full range of R&I stakeholders: researchers and research organisations, policy makers at global, European, national and regional level, business and industry representatives, science education members, and civil society organizations.
The conference will also host, in the evening of Monday 21st, the Awards Ceremony of the European Foundations Award for Responsible Research and Innovation, a sister initiative that aims to recognise the best 3 RRI projects in Europe and to publish 15 good RRI cases throughout Europe.
