NUCLEUS Annual Conference 2018 – Living RRI

Helene BrinkenRRI

What are  the challenges and opportunities when opening up research to the needs and values of society? How to implement Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in research institutions?

At the 4th NUCLEUS Conference taking place 11-12 October, 2018 in Valetta, the EU-funded project will present results from three years of testing and analyzing RRI practices.

NUCLEUS’ aims at a long-term shift towards a culture of responsible research in research institutions. Understanding the perspectives of all interacting stakeholders from policymaking, civil society, media, economy and public engagement is key for doing so. At the conference case studies and RRI test-beds will be presented to show how stakeholder-related approaches can be put into practice. The project will also present a new “DNA for RRI” that will help universities to grow and integrate a set of values and practices.

Join the conference to meet a RRI community dealing with new understandings of communication, learning and engagement. NUCLEUS invited representatives from the 25 consortium members including China and South Africa, EU commissioners and REA involved in RRI and Open Science as well as anyone who is interested in the challenges and opportunities of putting RRI into practice at universities.

Note: The organizers are accepting poster submissions until 14th of September.
