The RRI taxonomy defines that RRI involves society in science and innovation “very upstream” in the process of Research and Innovation (R&I) to align its outcomes with the values of the society. RRI is a wide umbrella connecting different aspects of the relationship between R&I and society: public engagement, open access, gender equality, science education, ethics, and governance.
In this RRI toolkit we include all the necessary courses to assist learners not only how to put RRI in practice, but also to make a strong connection between RRI and Open Science, an essential component for the application of RRI. This is why this page includes courses from both projects, FIT4RRI and FOSTER.
Each course takes about 1-3 hours to complete and each learner can receive a badge after its completion. The courses include practical tips and provide information on tools. There is no specified order through the courses – just explore topics that you want to learn more about at your own pace.
This introductory course will help you understand what RRI is and how to start applying it.
This course will help you understand the importance of public engagement in RRI and how to implement a public engagement strategy.
This course will help you to identify, discuss and apply ethical dimensions of research and innovation at individual and organisational levels.
