About EnRRICH

Kick-off meeting in Cambridge, July 2015

The Enhancing Responsible Research and Innovation through Curricula in Higher Education (EnRRICH) project will improve the capacity of students and staff in higher education to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes to support the embedding of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in curricula by responding to the research needs of society as expressed by civil society organisations (CSOs). To reach this aim, the project will identify, develop, pilot and disseminate good practice and relevant resources to embed the 5 RRI policy agendas ’Public Engagement’, ‘Science Education’, ‘Open Access’, ‘Ethics’ and ‘Gender’ – which might be added by additional policy agendas ‘Governance’, ‘Sustainability’ and ‘Social Justice’ – in  academic curricula across Europe.

Through sharing learning and initiating discussion and debates at institutional, national and international levels both within the consortium and beyond it, the EnRRICH project will create a better awareness of, and enhance the policy context for, RRI in curricula and thereby produce more responsible and responsive graduates and researchers. This project will focus on the co-creation of research to enable students to acquire the broad range of skills, knowledge and experience needed for a knowledge economy and knowledge society to flourish. The overall budget for the project is €1.5m and will run from July 2015 – December 2017.
