Call for Abstracts

In this 1st HEIRRI Conference we welcome contributions that present practices and training resources on how different elements of RRI -including research integrity, gender equality, science governance, open access, public engagement, but also anticipation, diversity, inclusion, reflection, responsiveness, sustainability, transparency and others- are being integrated into higher education curricula and the learning outcomes to which they lead. Contributions from different countries, contexts, and disciplines -both from the humanities, and the natural and social sciences- are highly appreciated, given the multidisciplinary approach of RRI. Participants will also contribute with their inputs to the initial design of the training materials that HEIRRI will be producing in the next two years.

Rules for submission
  1. Participants are invited to submit original scientific abstracts for poster or oral presentation.
  2. Due to time constraints, most contributions will be presented in poster format. Based on the authors’ preferences and the selection of abstracts accepted, the Conference Committee will decide which of the oral contributions are relocated as poster presentations.
  3. Abstracts should be short (max. 2,000 characters), clear and written in English with correct spelling and good sentence structure.
  4. We recommend that abstracts are carefully compiled and thoroughly checked, in particular the list of authors, before submission to avoid last minute changes.
  5. Abstracts need to be submitted
  6. The submission of an abstract carries with it the obligation that it is actually presented at the conference by the author or, at least, by one of the co-authors, provided that the abstract is finally accepted.
  7. Notification of acceptance or rejection by the Conference Committee will be mailed to the submitting author at the e-mail address supplied by January 20th. Relocation from oral to poster format will be notified as well.
  8. Accepted abstracts will be published electronically as a single volume at the RRI Tools website.
