Workshop – RRI in the Australian context


You are invited to join representatives from the EU Horizon 2020 RRI – Practice project, the UQ Centre for Future Policy Studies, CSIRO and the Delegation of the European Union to Australia, to discuss the opportunity for RRI in the Australian context and beyond. 

Particularly in light of the focus on research impact which is described on the Australian Research Council website as “the contribution that research makes to the economy, society, environment or culture, beyond the contribution to academic research”.
International delegates from the RRI -Practice project will present findings arising from the project – sharing multi-country perspectives on RRI in the science and technology context.
