GRACE

GRACE is a three year project contributing to the objective of embedding the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation 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 EC objective of spreading and embeddingRRI in the European Research Area through the development of a set of SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, 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 year long  roadmap to set a solid platform for attaining further institutional changes during the ‘after GRACE’  five year of the roadmap. Ecsite's role will be to assist the six implementing organisation in two of the areas: science education and citizen egangement with science. This journey will be accompanied by an evaluation and impact assessment scheme developed to oversee and monitor the project processes and impacts, using MoRRI and SDGs indicators, as well as SwafS Key Performance Indicators. 

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