An online database that makes available to the public a selection of practical and inspiring learning more about Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) has been created as part of the Higher Education Institutions & Responsible Research and Innovation (HEIRRI). 23 exemplary cases are presented in this database, which is an indispensable resource for everyone who works at the forefront of RRI.

The final selection of 23 was made based on the HEIRRI State of the Art Review, which reviewed hundreds of different outcomes ranging from traditional academic papers to training materials, courses, expert interviews, EU projects and more. The review was designed to explore the different ways in which issues of responsibility in R&I can be taught and trained in higher educational institutions.

Each case contains  an in-depth description consisting of the actual content, its relation to RRI teaching and learning, specific pedagogical methods applied, relation to the key areas of RRI, alignment with the RRI Tools classification and academic relevance. The database has become a publicly available resource, soon to be integrated in the existing RRI Tools platform to further strengthen its library content by adding inspiring practices, tools, project initiatives and their outputs as well as written elements elaborating different aspects of RRI.

Gema Revuelta, director of the Center for Studies of Science, Communication and Society (CCS-UPF) is the project coordinator HEIRRI whose aim is to integrate the concept of RRI in scientific and engineering careers, acting mainly from universities and other institutions of higher education.
