Policy workshop in Brussels

08.05.2019

May 7th, the RRI-Practice project organised a policy oriented workshop in Brussels to discuss their draft policy recommendations with important European stakeholders and RRI scholars. Both the League of European Research Universities (LERU), European University Alliance (EUA), European Association of Research Managers and Administrators (EARMA) and European Association of Research and Technology Organisations (EARTO) were represented, as well as the European Commission. On the RRI project side the coordinators of the Nucleus, JERRI and New HoRRIzon projects participated, as well as other RRI experts and RRI-Practice project members. The discussions were fruitful for assessing the challenges of RRI and there seemed to be a remarkable degree of consensus on the situation analysis, as well as on important action points. The workshop was highly important in the process of finalising the project’s policy recommendations.
