During the 1st HEIRRI Conference Teaching RRI at University celebrated on March 18th, 2016, five short videos were elaborated. The first of them is a general video of the event, summarizing the intense day of debates and interactions. The four other videos are video-capsules about different aspects related to the integration of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) into Higher Education Institutions. They are about “Pedagogies and RRI in Higher Education Institutions”, “Students and RRI in Higher Education Institutions”, “Benefits and RRI in Higher Education Institutions”, and “Challenges and RRI in Higher Education Institutions”.

The European Foundations Award for Responsible Research & Innovation has been launched with the aim of celebrating excellent research practices in which the process requirements of RRI have successfully been integrated throughout the research process. There will be three award winners of 20.000€ each.
Universities, research centres, individual researchers, research consortia, civil society organizations and any other type of organization involved in a responsible research practice in Europe can apply to the award. The research must be ongoing or has been finalised not earlier than 2013.
Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) will lead the European project HEIRRI: Higher Education Institutions & Responsible Research and Innovation, which aims to integrate the concept of “Responsible Research and Innovation”, or RRI, in the science and engineering degrees, mainly focusing in universities and other higher education institutions (HEI). The HEIRRI project starts on September 1st and will last three years, and has an approximate budget of one and a half million Euros.
The concept of “Responsible Research and Innovation”, or RRI, implies the alignment of R+D+i, in all its phases, with the needs, values and expectations of society. The European Commission is very actively fostering the knowledge and practical implementation of RRI, focusing its actions on 6 key axes: public engagement; science ethics; science education; gender equality; open access; and science governance.
