2nd HEIRRI Conference: Last days for abstracts submission

The 2nd HEIRRI Conference, Education towards a responsible society, transforming universities through RRI, will present the results of nearly three years of project activities designed to promote the integration of Responsible Research and Innovation within the education of scientists, engineers and other professionals involved in the R&D process. It will be held in Vienna on 27 April 2018.

Call for abstracts is now open! We are seeking for contributions presenting RRI practices, projects, programmes and initiatives that demonstrate the application of RRI in higher education.

Specifically, HEIRRI invites applications that put a spotlight on activities designed to integrate more democratic governance in research and innovation with an emphasis on positive societal impacts along with a promotion and application of a more anticipatory, reflexive, inclusive and responsive approach to research and innovation into higher education curricula. 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.

New deadline for abstract submission: December 10, 2017 (23:59 European Central Time)
