On the next day, Wednesday July 27th, Núria will present the European project HEIRRI in the interdisciplinary paper session P15 (6:00pm – 7:30pm). She will talk about the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and how its integration in the university education is being reflected on and interpreted within the HEIRRI project (Higher Education Institutions and Responsible Research and Innovation), a Horizon2020 initiative coordinated by CSC-UPF.

SIS2016 has contributions from the five following fields: Physics & Mathematics, Social Sciences & Humanities, Engineering, Information & Technology, Life Sciences, and Health & Pharmacy. There will be interdisciplinary activities encouraging a horizontal debate and serving as incubators of new initiatives.
