Final RRI-Practice consortium meeting in Padova

27.03.2019

Members of the RRI-Practice consortium came to the beautiful city of Padova for their final meeting (27-29 March 2019). The meeting will be also attended by the members of the Advisory Board. The busy three-day agenda includes the presentations and discussions of the comparison reports on the five RRI keys, the AIRR dimensions (anticipation, inclusion, reflection and responsiveness), national discourses and practices on RRI and a study of how different aspects of RRI interact and overlap with each other. Also discussed will be policy recommendations for national and EU policy-makers and for research0funding and research-conducting organisations. A valuable feedback is expected from the Advisory Board, as it will help the consortium to finalise the comparison reports and recommendations, and to maximise the impact of the project in the final six months of the project. The consortium will also talk about various dissemination activities, such as forthcoming publications and important events such as the policy-oriented workshop “Transforming the relationships between science, innovation and society through organisational change” (Brussels, 7 May 2019) and the final conference “Pathways to Transformation: Insights from global institutional RRI experiments” (Brussels, Le Plaza, 20-21 June 2019 – see https://www.rri-practice.eu/…/pathways-to-transformation-c…/ for how to register!). The meeting in Padova is organised by the Centre on environmental, ethical, legal and social decisions on emerging technologies (CIGA) at the University of Padova.
