  • Practical guide or toolkit

Making science engaging is vital work, but fraught with challenges. How do you stay relevant in your local community? How do you ensure activities are designed in a way that places the needs and preferences of multiple target audiences at their centre? How do you find new collaborators and effectively expand your network? If you work for a science engagement organisation and need some support or just a little direction, this quick start guide to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) will help.

Reading the inspiring real-life examples in this guide will help you to understand what RRI looks like in practice, and how the approach can help you to develop or improve your own activities.

Developed in 2016 as part of the RRI Tools project.
