1st Higher Education Institutions and RRI Conference

18th of March, 2016, in CosmoCaixa Science Museum, Barcelona, Spain

Ecsite and LCF are partners in the HEIRRI (Higher Education Institutions and RRI) project, aimed to develop education resources to introduce RRI at universities. HEIRRI will use the RRI Tools website as its main digital platform, and it will contribute to the RRI Toolkit with the materials elaborated during the project.

As part of the HEIRRI efforts, the 1st HEIRRI Conference, Teaching Responsible Research and Innovation at University, has launched its call for abstracts (deadline: December, 15th).

This conference will bring together professionals from European organisations working in Research and Innovation, including higher education institutions, research centres, institutions of formal and informal learning, public institutions, industry, and civil society organisations. A combination of keynote talks, participatory working sessions, and a poster session will allow participants to share good practices in how higher education institutions can engage the different actors in RRI. Networking will be prioritised to allow participants to make connections with professionals from across Europe.
