Starting the Process

Guidelines for Decision

The second part of the Guidelines focuses on the decisions to be made for activating the governance setting process. In particular, Chapter Three deals with the decisions concerning if, why, and to what extent implementing RRI and Open Science in one’s organisation. The output of this process should be an RRI/OS profile tailored on needs, features, and expectations of the organisation itself. Chapter Four aims to help choose a governance setting model. To this aim, a typology of governance settings is presented with some examples drawn out of real cases. Although the two sets of decisions are analytically separated from each other, they are part of a unique and more complex decision-making process, necessarily entailing different kinds of activities including consultations, exchange, and data collection.
