Deliverable 16.4

General process recommendations for a reflective RRI audit in multi-partner, international projects is a document containing recommendations based on a review conducted within the RRI Practice research project. It offers guidance on how to implement a reflective RRI review process in general, and how to identify and manage the practical aspects of doing research, which includes dealing with the often competing demands from research conducting and research funding organisations.
The experiences of RRI Practice project partners are compared to experiences described in the academic literature, on the following topics: managing different interpretations of the core research concept; combining societal impact with the need for rigour in research; negotiating the demand for inclusion of societal stakeholders in research; balancing the need for flexibility with the requirement of clear and consistent research protocols; and integrating particular formulations of policy areas, including the five EC policy keys, in research projects.
