19 – 20 April 2021
The RRING project, Responsible Research and Innovation Networked Globally, funded by the European Commission under its Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, is nearing completion. This two-day summit brings together the key learnings and insights from its activities.
RRING activities have shown that better collaboration among all science and technology stakeholders is needed for an advocacy directed toward influencing public policy and decision-making by policymakers to improve aspects such as public engagement, open access, gender, ethics, and science education and to allow science and technology to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
To support science and technology stakeholders and empower them with the tools to achieve ever more responsibility and freedom in research and innovation, RRING has been developing recommendations for the development of competitive advantage based on RRI and conducting trials with countries supporting them in measuring progress on the priority areas of the Recommendation on Science. RRING is now evolving beyond the project itself to become an open and welcoming community, spreading and sharing the ideas of responsible research and innovation.
