Higher Education Institutions & Responsible Research and Innovation

The aim of HEIRRI is to contribute to the integration of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) within the formal and informal education of future scientists, engineers and other professionals involved in research and innovation processes. HEIRRI considers RRI as a  transformative, critical and radical concept. HEIRRI will create and share a stock-taking inventory of RRI teaching activities, which will inform the development of RRI Training programs and formative materials, offering the students knowledge and skills to develop viable solutions to specific problems related to R&I, integrating theory and practice. They will be designed for the different HEI educational levels (undergraduate, MD and PhD, summer courses and MOOC), mainly based on Problem Based Learning methodology, and supported by multimedia materials (videos and microvideos, 2.0 materials, etc). A total of 10 different RRI courses will be piloted across European higher education institutions.
