Work package 2: Identifying best practice, surveying needs and developing new course material in RRI
D2.1 Initial review of RRI aspects in Higher Education curricula in Europe: consultation and analysis of needs
This report is a first survey of experiences, knowledge and attitudes among lecturers at European higher education institutions that are part of or linked to the EnRRICH project, with regard to RRI and involving CSOs in teaching and learning. The aim of this report is to identify needs among lecturers and directors of education at European universities with regard to developing more inclusion of aspects of RRI and working with CSOs in teaching and learning.
D2.2 Good Practices and Case Studies
Good practices and case studies that demonstrate the embedding of RRI in modules and courses with a special focus on CSO involvement have been identified.
D2.3 The EnRRICH tool for educators: (Re-)Designing curricula in higher education from a “Responsible Research and Innovation” perspective
The tool provides insights about what RRI in higher education entails, about principles to take into account when (re-)designing curricula, about specific RRI competencies to be acquired by higher education students, about concrete steps for setting RRI - driven learning outcomes and for choosing consistent assessment, teaching and learning methods, with a focus on higher education modules.
Work package 3: Piloting RRI educational materials in higher education curricula
D3.1 Resources for enhancing RRI understanding and prompting debate on societal issues in the curriculum for early stage students
The case studies in this deliverable were used by partners to help students reflexively engage with RRI, and on how research and practice within their discipline could incorporate openness and transparency, anticipation and reflection with the research design and innovations processes.
D3.2 Report on trialling of RRI teaching strategies including an executive summary of the completed pilots including case studies and teaching materials for widespread dissemination
This report provides a critical review of 9 exemplar pilots conducted as part of the EnRRICH Horizon 2020 project to embed responsible research and innovation (RRI) in higher education curricula.
D3.3 Framework and resources for a professional development workshop for academic staff to support the integration of RRI in Higher Education curricula
This report provides an overview of the professional development activities or workshops organised by EnRRICH members, identifies the key learning from the pilots and proposes a framework for professional development activities focussed on integrating RRI in the curriculum.
Work package 4: Strengthening RRI in curricula through science shop work – good practice exchange and pilots
D4.1 Report on Science Shop pilots and exchanges
In this report, the outcomes are evaluated, in order to test Science Shops as mechanisms to integrate RRI in curricula.
Work package 5: Advance the uptake of RRI in academic curricula by utilising and developing the policy context at institutional, national and international levels to encourage this work
D5.1 Summary Report on Policy for Rewarding Responsible Research and Innovation through academic curricula in Higher Education
This report summarises the results of a policy scoping exercise to examine how and where Responsible Research and Innovation connects with the interests of people involved in policy development for teaching and learning in higher education. It concludes that there are synergies which to date have not been fully examined, and seeks the views on how to further articulate these connections.
5.2 How can Europe Create a Generation of Responsible and Engaged Researchers, Innovators and Citizens?
This policy brief examines cross-cutting issues between higher education teaching policy and RRI. It aims to stimulate discussion amongst European higher education policymakers about the value of embedding RRI in higher education curricula and developing curricula to enable students to respond to societal research needs.

5.3 Embedding Responsible Research and Innovation in Higher Education Curricula: Practical approaches
Over the last 2.5 years, the Enhancing Responsible Research and Innovation through Curricula in Higher Education (EnRRICH) project has offered students and staff in HEIs across Europe a chance to pilot Responsible Research and Innovation in higher education curricula by participating in engaged research with Civil Society Organisation partners.
5.4 Embedding Responsible Research and Innovation in Higher Education Curricula: Practical approaches
This policy brief highlights resources developed to support academic staff in higher education institutions (HEIs) to incorporate Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in their teaching. It also offers some initial conclusions and recommendations on how to embed RRI approaches in HEI teaching and learning, based on experiences in the EnRRICH project.

D6.1 Embedding and strengthening RRI in the curriculum through pilots and good practice exchange: what we have learned so far
This deliverable reports on peer evaluation activities run so far and draws some together the results mainly based on peer evaluators’ reports and discussions as well as the focus group results.
Deliverable 6.2 Responsible Higer Education: Principles for Educational Design and Pedagogy
This paper provides guidance towards the development of educational design and pedagogy that equips students as responsible actors of the future.
D6.3 Lessons learned and main recommendations emerging from evaluation activities of the EnRRICH project
This deliverable will point out some of the main challenges to embedding RRI in the Higher Education curriculum and proposes recommendations emerging from lessons learned.
Work package 7: Dissemination
D7.2 Social Media Report
This deliverable analyses (qualitative) the social media channels used by project partners and maps out a dissemination strategy via social media for the project. D7.2 is part of a broader dissemination plan which aims to structure the dissemination activities during the project.
