Do you believe that research should address societal challenges? Launched in September 2015, the NUCLEUS project focuses on overcoming institutional barriers to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), for a better alignment of the research and innovation process with the values, needs and expectations of society.
The NUCLEUS team warmly invites you to the NUCLEUS Annual Conference taking place 5-6 October, 2017 in Hannover, Germany!
The conference will present a challenging panel discussion on the 6th of October with some of the most interesting currently runnig RRI projects!
Martin Bergman from Vetenskap & Allmänhet, VA (Public & Science) in Stockholm, Sweden will present the project ORION. Martin is a researcher working with various studies, such as the VA barometer and the annual SOM survey. He is also active in the Horizon 2020 projects ORION and SciShops, where his main contributions are baseline research, benchmarking and public surveys.
The ORION (Open Responsible research and Innovation to further Outstanding kNowledge) project focuses on “embedding” Open Science and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) principles in Research Performing and Funding Organizations (RPFO) by promoting institutional and cultural changes. This will be achieved by performing “co-creation” experiments with the different RRI stakeholders. We will carry out co-creation experiments in three key challenge areas: 1) Opening up the research engine – making RFPOs more permeable to receiving input from numerous, distinct stakeholders; 2) Identifying risks and opportunities presented by disruptive technologies; 3) Running multi-stakeholder projects based on citizen science. We will also produce new training material to enrich the current collections (RRI-Tools and FOSTER). The consortium will count on the participation of RPFOs from different countries as well as representative of RRI stakeholders and experts in social sciences.
