The HEIRRI project calls on higher education institutions from all continents interested in Responsible Research and Innovation and its integration into the curricula for a pilot test of two of the training programs and materials developed by the HEIRRI project.
The project, by the hand of the GUNi network, has launched this call today, whereby the selected institutions will pilot the testing of the HEIRRI materials in parallel with the Consortium member institutions (between June 2017 and April 2018). They will actively participate in the learning process, giving feedback on the materials and their use in their institutions.
The call offers to pilot the «Train-the-trainer» and one of the following of their choice:
|Doing and Experiencing Dialogical Reflection on Research and Innovation||Master’s students||Workshop (eight units)||3.0-5.0|
|Enhance your Thesis||Master’s students||Workshop (six units)||2.0-4.0|
|Responsible PhD: RRI and PhD Research Projects||PhD students||One-day workshop||1.0–2.0|
|Facilitating Reflection on Responsible Research and Innovation||Academic and non-academic HEI members||Train-the-trainer one-day workshop||0.0-1.0|
|Considering Responsible Research and Innovation by Design||Master’s and PhD students, R&I actors, other stakeholders||Summer school (five days)||2.0|
The awarded institutions will participate in the second HEIRRI Conference, where they will share their experiences with a wider audience and present future plans related to the introduction of RRI teaching in their institutions.
Applications will be accepted from 1st March to 30th April 2017 (both included) . They must be submitted in English, together with an attached motivation statement, through this submission form.
