26 October – 14 December 2021
For almost three years, GRACE project partners have worked towards implementing fundamental institutional change in 6 research performing and funding organisations. With an intense mutual learning programme and a co-creation environment, six expert partners have supported six other partners in developing a set of specific RRI-orientated Grounding Actions in their organisation. These actions have provided a basis for developing tailored 8-year RRI Roadmaps within these institutions to ensure their sustainability and full implementation over the long-term.
As the project comes to an end, project partners will share their findings and provide stakeholders with useful knowledge to implement RRI in research performing and funding organisations by organising a set of eight thematic webinars.
From 26 October to 14 December, these webinars will each address a different topic related to GRACE, with the participation of experts inside and outside of the project. Each webinar will take place online from 2:00pm to 3:30pm CET.
ON THE AGENDA:
Main considerations to take into account at the start of an RRI project
Making the case for public engagement
The challenges of developing gender equality plans (GEPs) in Research Funding organisations
Public Engagement from the research funding organisations’ perspective
Different approaches to Evaluation
Bottom-up RRI initiatives
Ethics and Data Protection in humanities research
RRI and Sustainability
