Developing tools for RRI

Bereich: Technik & Wissen

The European-wide approach in Horizon 2020 called Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) accelerates a paradigm change in research and science. Besides the anticipation of and reflection on consequences research and innovation has for our society the public shall be involved in the discussion how science and technology can help to create a kind of world and society we want for future generations to happen. RRI brings together different aspects of the relationship between science and innovation with society, ethics, gender equality, open access, public engagement, and science education. But, how can heterogeneous stakeholder groups, such as industry, policy makers, researchers, civil society organizations or educators adopt the concept of RRI? What is an effective way to involve stakeholder groups into the RRI processes?
The RRI-Tools project will develop and deploy a training and advocacy toolkit on RRI, which will be addressed and designed by the above mentioned stakeholder groups. As a first step, based on different approaches and discussions, a common working definition on RRI has been developed. In a second step, the versatile thoughts, feelings, and interests of the five stakeholder groups were acquired. Therefore stakeholder consultation workshops were conducted in 22 different European countries involving 411 stakeholders. One of the tools developed in the framework of the project will be a self-assessment tool. This paper will identify the opportunities but also consider the restrictions due to limitations and obstacles regarding that tool.
