Cards for fostering RRI conversations

  • December 2016
  • Education & learning
  • Topics in science
  • Material for workshops and exhibitions

Cards have been used since early human history for different purposes, but overall, for presenting a topic or a situation, with which the people holding the cards play, reflect, argue or debate.

This set of cards presents different questions, statements & ideas that will foster, hopefully, friendly conversations and collective reflections about different aspects of Research and Innovation, and the different scopes of Responsible Research and Innovation, RRI. Making science engaging is vital work, but fraught with challenges. How do you stay relevant in your local community? What do we understand about Open Access? What do you expect of research and innovation? Like science itself, RRI isn’t about a specific process or tool –it’ s a framework for thinking in a way that anticipates the consequences of research and innovation, brings issues into the open, and involves society in discussing how science and technology can help create a better world for future generations.

Developed as part of the RRI Tools project (2014-2016).

RRI Tools

RRI Tools aimed at raising awareness, training, and disseminating and implementing Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). RRI is a process where all societal actors (researchers, citizens, policy makers, business) work together during the whole research and innovation (R&I) process in order to align its outcomes to the values, needs and expectations of European society.
