FIT4RRI Call for Training Events

Pedro PrincipeFIT4RRI Project

FIT4RRI project activity aims to establish and manage a comprehensive training programme on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and Open Science (OS), reaching out to a significant number of stakeholders in the European Research Area. The training programme comprises different training actions, which includes a call for proposals on hosting FIT4RRI Training events on RRI and OS to be held from March to December 2019.

We are looking to support different types of training events and strategies, ranging from short (two or three-hour) workshops to multiple day workshops, from face-to-face training to e-learning sessions.

FIT4RRI will provide assistance in shaping the training programme, selecting training materials and recommending speakers/trainers. Participation of FIT4RRI consortium members as trainers or in other roles is highly recommended.

Financial support for events will also be provided to cover the costs of the venue, training materials, travel of speakers, etc. (note that speaker’s fees are not included), to a maximum of 4000€ per project.

Preference will be given to the projects providing practical training.

Some examples of the training formats and content that we would like to support:

  • Courses for trainers/multipliers who can carry on further training activities within their institutions, countries and/or disciplinary communities.
  • Workshops/Training targeting one of the stakeholders – academic staff (researchers and students), institutions (research administrators… ), research project managers, policy-makers and staff working in funding bodies…
  • E-learning, blended learning, self-learning online courses on RRI.
