RRI or Responsible Research and Innovation is a model proposed by European Union to develop scientific research and technological innovation that takes into account effects and potential impacts on the environment and society. The 6 key policies of RRI tackle essential issues that need to be considered to make research and innovation responsible. Those include high ethical standards, communicating the scientific results in open access journals and using open data, making science accessible to the general public through public engagement and actively contributing to science education, ensuring mechanisms to eliminate gender bias, and establishing governance that involves multiple stakeholders in fulfilling the RRI principles.

The workshop starts with a series of interactive exercises where participants explore the basics of RRI, with the aim to gain the basic understanding of the key policies, stakeholders and Grand Challenges identified by the European Commission as the major focus of research and innovation. This introduction will then serve as a basis for the analysis of each participant’s PhD project to understand if their project is in alignment with RRI principles.

1st session – get to know RRI through active learning and peer2peer teaching
2nd session – apply the RRI principles to analyze your Ph.D. project and present your analysis to other participants

Responsable pédagogique : Milosevic Tamara

Tamara Milosevic has been developing learning-through-research courses for the last 8 years after finishing her Ph.D. in interdisciplinary life sciences. Her main goal is to design the learning experience where students (and life-long learners!) gradually develop research and transversal skills and increase their understanding of life sciences. Two years ago she co-founded Rhizome Association, which promotes the vision of future education for adults, based on active learning, skills development and interdisciplinary projects in science, arts and civic engagement. The goal of Rhizome Association is to develop and implement educational programs and interdisciplinary projects, focusing on sustainable development goals. She is an independent consultant in pedagogical innovation since 2015, and has been teaching at the undergraduate level since 2012, training the higher education staff since 2016, and giving workshops to PhD students since 2018. Since 2018 she is teaching professional development courses at University Paris Diderot, and develops new activities to help students develop crucial professional skills during their studies.
