Your views could help shape Responsible Research policy

The Responsible Research and Innovation Networking Globally (RRING) project aims to explore what responsible research means in practice, and how we can support and embed it in higher education.

The RRING project is an EU-funded initiative which considers how issues of responsible research can be addressed within academia and innovation. It follows from almost two decades of European initiatives to promote and progress responsible research and innovation, and develop a methodology and set of guidelines which globally unify knowledge and best practice on RRI projects. 

The RRING project aims to link up academic expertise into a community network, in order to share best practice and develop tools and resources to benefit research working practices. Built around six pillars, of gender equality, open access & data, science education, public engagement and governance, the project has looked at barriers to responsible research, and strategies to addressing them, and how they can be better aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

They are now inviting people working in research and innovation to share their views, in an online survey, which will form the basis of the project's next steps. To find out more about the project, visit the RRING website, and to complete the survey, click here. The closing date for submissions is 20 November 2019.
