New RRI on-line course for researchers

A new on-line course on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) is now available, jointly designed by the team of three projects: PERFORM, HEIRRI and GenPORT and offered by UOC (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya)

RRI is one of the emerging topics in many international funding schemes and the RRI paradigm is the focal point of many calls and among the others those of Science With and For Society. However a significant gap separates theoretical reflections and concepts from their applications in research practice. 

This online course is a response to RRI’s increasing relevance in the academic community, providing an introduction to the theory and practice of this new framework, and offering critical reflections to contribute towards bridging the gap between the conceptualization and operationalization of RRI.  For this reason, the UOC has decided to launch an on-line course, in English, on RRI that is offered from 21 February. New edition of the course are foreseen to broaden the opportunities for researchers to reflect and practice the ideas and guidelines developed over the last few years around this topics.
