GRACE

GRACE is a three-year project contributing to the objective of embedding the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in the European Research Area through the development of Grounding Actions in six Research Funding and Performing Organisations. The Grounding Actions should lead to institutional changes in these institutions. 

GRACE aims to contribute to the European Commission's objective of spreading and embedding Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in the European Research Area through the development of a set of SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-bound) Grounding Actions (GAs) in six Research Funding and Performing Organisations (RFPO) leading to fundamental RRI-oriented institutional changes during the lifetime of the project. These GAs will be incorporated in an eight-year-long roadmap to set a solid platform for attaining further institutional changes in the five years after GRACE ends.

Ecsite's role is to assist the six implementing organisations in two RRI areas: science education and citizen engagement with science. This journey will be accompanied by an evaluation and impact assessment scheme developed to oversee and monitor the project's processes and impacts, using MoRRI and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) indicators, as well as the European Commission's Science with and for Society (SwafS) Key Performance Indicators.

GRACE has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement no. 824521.
