Starting the Process

Guidelines for Interpretation

This first part of the Guidelines is aimed at providing orientations useful for interpreting the changes affecting one’s research organisation. In an “ideal” pathway toward RRI and OS, analysing these changes should be understood as a necessary step for making appropriate decisions about why, how, and to what extent to activate a governance setting process for making the organisation more open and responsible. Chapter One focuses on the deep transformations which are affecting science in general and how they impact on the research organisations. Chapter Two tries to explain the concepts of RRI and Open Science and gives suggestions on how to make a diagnosis of RRI/OS-related actions already carried out in the organisation.
