The 2nd HEIRRI Conference will present the results of nearly three years of project activities designed to promote the integration of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) within the education of scientists, engineers and other professionals involved in the R&D process. It will be held in Vienna on the 27th April 2018.
Call for abstracts is now open! The EC-funded project is seeking for contributions presenting RRI practices, projects, programmes and initiatives that demonstrate the application of RRI in higher education. In the 2nd HEIRRI Conference, this H2020 project welcomes contributions presenting RRI practices, projects, programmes and initiatives that demonstrate the application of RRI in higher education.

The main emphasis should be placed on specific educational outcomes and achievements. The project is seeking for applications from different countries, context and disciplines, both from the humanities and the natural and social sciences. (more…)
