RRI: ACADEMIC BACKGROUND
§ Research and innovation produce knowledge/technology à
may help to help solve societal/ecological challenges (if implemented)
§ But also ethical dilemmas and undesirable (second-order) effects on society/environment
§ Societal debates on how and when R & I produce what; particularly who decides on
the basis of which criteria?
§ Long-standing tradition in thinking about / governing relation between science-society
§ Research Integrity, Open Science and Innovation, Science ethics/ Bioethics, ELSA/ELSI,
Interactive/Constructive/Participatory Technology Assessment, Corporate Social
Responsibility, Anticipatory governance, Sustainable Technological Development, Sociology
of Knowledge, Philosophy of Science etc.
§ RRI: new label that combines all that with a concern about the competitive position of
European R&I
5
ACADEMIC BACKGROUND
RRI is
• A transparent, interactive process by which societal actors and innovators
become mutually responsive to each other with a view to the (ethical)
acceptability, sustainability and societal desirability of the innovation
process and its marketable products (in order to allow a proper
embedding of scientific and technological advances in our society
(Von Schomberg 2011)
• Responsible innovation means taking care of the future through
collective stewardship of science and innovation in the present, …
possessing dimensions of anticipation, reflexivity, inclusion and
responsiveness (Stilgoe et al 2013: 1571)
6
HOW HAS IT BEEN REFLECTED IN H2020?
§ Various national research funding organisations (in the Netherlands, Norway,
…) adopted the notion as overarching principle in specific funding schemes
§ European Commission embraced RRI in Von Schomberg’s reading:
Responsible research and innovation means that societal actors work together during the whole
research and innovation process in order to better align both the process and its outcomes, with
the values, needs and expectations of European society. RRI is an ambitious challenge for the
creation of a research and innovation policy driven by the needs of society and engaging all societal
actors via inclusive participatory approaches (EC, 2014)
§ Operationalised in 6 keys: Public engagement, Gender Equality, Science
Education, Open Access (Open Science), Ethics and Governance
7
POSSIBILITIES TO IMPROVE INTEGRATION OF RRI IN ITN PROPOSALS
Generally
§ ITN’s training next generation of promising researchers:
transferable/soft skills training à
specifically integrate training programmes on (aspects of) RRI
(e.g. two-way Public Engagement, Gender Dimension, Science education, Research
Integrity and long-term Ethical implications of research, Open Data Management)
§ Room for inter-/multi-disciplinarity and intersectoral exchange à
integration of CSOs and other non-academic public representative organisations
Under specific evaluation criteria
§ Gender dimension under Excellence-criterion;
§ Science education and Public engagement (competitive edge) under Impact-criterion;
§ Open Access under Impact;
§ Ethics as something beyond ticking boxes.

EXAMPLES OF BEST PRACTICES – ITN-ETN
Improving Genome Editing Efficiency (IMGENE / 2017-2021 / coordinated in Denmark)
‘IMGENE unites expert European research groups of academia and industry to address by
innovative and complementary approaches the low efficiency of precise genome editing
using CRISPR technology’
‘The IMGENE consortium consisting of 6 academic and 1 industrial beneficiary
(AstraZeneca), 2 industrial partners (Taconic; MilliporeSigma), and the patient organization
Genetic Alliance, aims to improve the genome editing efficiency of CRISPR by research
training of 8 ESRs to unleash the full potential of this technology.’
‘IMGENE will establish novel tools and protocols for improved CRISPR genome editing
efficiency that will be of immediate benefit for health and life science research, the
pharmaceutical industry, and the application of gene therapy. In addition, IMGENE addresses
crucial ethical questions related to the application of genome editing technology in
animals, plants, and humans, which have to be solved to gain acceptance by the society. ‘

EXAMPLES OF BEST PRACTICES – ITN-ETN
Social Science Aspects of Fisheries for the 21st Century (SAF21 / 2015-2028 / coordinated in Norway)
‘SAF21 is an interdisciplinary and intersectoral network that embeds the social scientists of the future
into EU fisheries management systems. […]
an integrated understanding of the fine mechanisms governing fishers’ behaviour in relation with the
regulative processes is needed, to the benefit of decision makers, fishing industry and the environment
alike. Academic research and training have insufficiently reflected this need. SAF21 will contribute to
rectifying this by training researchers in using tools of the 21st century […] The wide-ranging training
envisaged will offer a structured doctoral training in academic and transferable skills in addition to highly
intersectoral non-academic mobility opportunities. Thus, the SAF21 candidates will have the necessary skills
and experience to cross disciplines and work sectors. SAF21 will provide researchers the opportunity to
fulfill their scientific social responsibility at a higher level than conventional doctoral programs, by
ensuring significant time and training for public engagement and outreach.‘

FURTHER BACKGROUND AND TOOLS
13
‘Engagement of all societal actors - researchers, industry, policy-makers and civil
society – and their joint participation in the research and innovation process, in
accordance with the value of inclusiveness, as reflected in the Charter of
Fundamental Rights of the European Union. A sound framework for excellence in
Research & Innovation entails that the societal challenges are framed on the
basis of widely representative social, economic and ethical concerns and common
principles. Moreover, mutual learning and agreed practices are needed to
develop joint solutions to societal problems and opportunities, and to pre-empt
possible public value failures of future innovation’ (EC, 2012)

EXAMPLE – GENDERED INNOVATIONS IN BASIC SCIENCE
‘Gendered Innovations:
1. Studying sex differences in animal models has led to new treatments for
traumatic brain injury (TBi).
2. Accounting for pregnancy, estrous cycle, and menopausal status in animal
models has revealed the biological influence of hormones on basic
molecular pathways and has been important to understanding certain
autoimmune diseases.
3. Regulators have considered sex in order to improve animal models for
toxicity; this has led to stronger environmental health standards.’
(EC, 2013, 15)

‘In order to be responsible, research and innovation must be both transparent
and accessible. Our fourth key is to make Open Access a reality. This means giving
free online access to the results of publicly-funded research (publications and data).
This will boost innovation and further increase the use of scientific results by all
societal actors’ (EC, 2012)

‘Europe must not only increase its number of researchers, it also needs to
enhance the current education process to better equip future researchers and
other societal actors with the necessary knowledge and tools to fully participate
and take responsibility in the research and innovation process. There is an urgent
need to boost the interest of children and youth in maths, science and
technology, so they can become the researchers of tomorrow, and contribute to a
science-literate society. Creative thinking calls for science education as a means
to make change happen’ (EC, 2012)

Transformative educational modules for future-proofing European
food systems are developed as part of the FIT4FOOD2030 project,
which is funded by the Horizon 2020 framework of the European
Union for research and innovation. The project brings together a
consortium of eighteen partners.
[…]
As part of these efforts, students’ competences at all levels are also
strengthened as current and future researchers, entrepreneurs, policy-
makers and citizens at large. Eighteen educational modules are co-
created as part of the FIT4FOOD2030 City Labs, which are hosted by
various science centres and museums, educational organisations and
science shops. These educational modules address research and
innovation on food systems and touch upon topics such as circularity,
resource efficiency, nutrition and health, as well as climate and
sustainability.
(http://www.scientix.eu/projects/project-detail?articleId=770418)
‘European society is based on shared values. In order to adequately respond to
societal challenges, research and innovation must respect fundamental rights and
the highest ethical standards. Beyond the mandatory legal aspects, this aims to
ensure increased societal relevance and acceptability of research and innovation
outcomes. Ethics should not be perceived as a constraint to research and
innovation, but rather as a way of ensuring high quality results.’ (EC, 2012)

  • 5. RRI: ACADEMIC BACKGROUND § Research and innovation produce knowledge/technology à may help to help solve societal/ecological challenges (if implemented) § But also ethical dilemmas and undesirable (second-order) effects on society/environment § Societal debates on how and when R & I produce what; particularly who decides on the basis of which criteria? § Long-standing tradition in thinking about / governing relation between science-society § Research Integrity, Open Science and Innovation, Science ethics/ Bioethics, ELSA/ELSI, Interactive/Constructive/Participatory Technology Assessment, Corporate Social Responsibility, Anticipatory governance, Sustainable Technological Development, Sociology of Knowledge, Philosophy of Science etc. § RRI: new label that combines all that with a concern about the competitive position of European R&I 5
  • 6. ACADEMIC BACKGROUND RRI is • A transparent, interactive process by which societal actors and innovators become mutually responsive to each other with a view to the (ethical) acceptability, sustainability and societal desirability of the innovation process and its marketable products (in order to allow a proper embedding of scientific and technological advances in our society (Von Schomberg 2011) • Responsible innovation means taking care of the future through collective stewardship of science and innovation in the present, … possessing dimensions of anticipation, reflexivity, inclusion and responsiveness (Stilgoe et al 2013: 1571) 6
  • 7. HOW HAS IT BEEN REFLECTED IN H2020? § Various national research funding organisations (in the Netherlands, Norway, …) adopted the notion as overarching principle in specific funding schemes § European Commission embraced RRI in Von Schomberg’s reading: Responsible research and innovation means that societal actors work together during the whole research and innovation process in order to better align both the process and its outcomes, with the values, needs and expectations of European society. RRI is an ambitious challenge for the creation of a research and innovation policy driven by the needs of society and engaging all societal actors via inclusive participatory approaches (EC, 2014) § Operationalised in 6 keys: Public engagement, Gender Equality, Science Education, Open Access (Open Science), Ethics and Governance 7
  • 8. POSSIBILITIES TO IMPROVE INTEGRATION OF RRI IN ITN PROPOSALS Generally § ITN’s training next generation of promising researchers: transferable/soft skills training à specifically integrate training programmes on (aspects of) RRI (e.g. two-way Public Engagement, Gender Dimension, Science education, Research Integrity and long-term Ethical implications of research, Open Data Management) § Room for inter-/multi-disciplinarity and intersectoral exchange à integration of CSOs and other non-academic public representative organisations Under specific evaluation criteria § Gender dimension under Excellence-criterion; § Science education and Public engagement (competitive edge) under Impact-criterion; § Open Access under Impact; § Ethics as something beyond ticking boxes. 8
  • 9. EXAMPLES OF BEST PRACTICES – ITN-ETN Improving Genome Editing Efficiency (IMGENE / 2017-2021 / coordinated in Denmark) ‘IMGENE unites expert European research groups of academia and industry to address by innovative and complementary approaches the low efficiency of precise genome editing using CRISPR technology’ ‘The IMGENE consortium consisting of 6 academic and 1 industrial beneficiary (AstraZeneca), 2 industrial partners (Taconic; MilliporeSigma), and the patient organization Genetic Alliance, aims to improve the genome editing efficiency of CRISPR by research training of 8 ESRs to unleash the full potential of this technology.’ ‘IMGENE will establish novel tools and protocols for improved CRISPR genome editing efficiency that will be of immediate benefit for health and life science research, the pharmaceutical industry, and the application of gene therapy. In addition, IMGENE addresses crucial ethical questions related to the application of genome editing technology in animals, plants, and humans, which have to be solved to gain acceptance by the society. ‘ (https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/765269) 9
  • 10. EXAMPLES OF BEST PRACTICES – ITN-ETN Social Science Aspects of Fisheries for the 21st Century (SAF21 / 2015-2028 / coordinated in Norway) ‘SAF21 is an interdisciplinary and intersectoral network that embeds the social scientists of the future into EU fisheries management systems. […] an integrated understanding of the fine mechanisms governing fishers’ behaviour in relation with the regulative processes is needed, to the benefit of decision makers, fishing industry and the environment alike. Academic research and training have insufficiently reflected this need. SAF21 will contribute to rectifying this by training researchers in using tools of the 21st century […] The wide-ranging training envisaged will offer a structured doctoral training in academic and transferable skills in addition to highly intersectoral non-academic mobility opportunities. Thus, the SAF21 candidates will have the necessary skills and experience to cross disciplines and work sectors. SAF21 will provide researchers the opportunity to fulfill their scientific social responsibility at a higher level than conventional doctoral programs, by ensuring significant time and training for public engagement and outreach.‘ (https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/642080) 10

  • 12. RRI THINKING TOOL 12 Source: www.thinkingtool.eu
  • 14. ‘Engagement of all societal actors - researchers, industry, policy-makers and civil society – and their joint participation in the research and innovation process, in accordance with the value of inclusiveness, as reflected in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. A sound framework for excellence in Research & Innovation entails that the societal challenges are framed on the basis of widely representative social, economic and ethical concerns and common principles. Moreover, mutual learning and agreed practices are needed to develop joint solutions to societal problems and opportunities, and to pre-empt possible public value failures of future innovation’ (EC, 2012) PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT 14
  • 15. PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT Facilitate structures for participation -Including public groups (CSOs, patient organizations, trade unions, citizen panels) in the definition and supervision of R&I (advisory and evaluation boards, research ethics committees...) -Developing the creation of Science Shops, Living Labs and other related structures aiming at promoting multi- stakeholder dialogue. Influence R&I Agendas -Promoting the use of facilitating deliberations methods to induce citizens participation into R&I policy- making. -Increasing citizens engagement in monitoring transparency and traceability of outcomes of R&I projects. -Advancing towards future- oriented decision making. Co-develop and co-decide about R&I -Fostering research projects with more societally relevant outcomes, implementing participatory research designs in an iterative fashion. -Promoting community- based research. -Fostering participatory Technology Assessment.

  • 16. PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT The Engage 2020 Action catalogue is an online decision support tool that is intended to enable researchers, policy- makers and others wanting to conduct inclusive research, to find the method best suited for their specific project needs. (http://actioncatalogue.eu/) The Living Knowledge network of Science Shops aims to build partnerships for public access to research. A Science Shop provides independent, participatory research and support in response to concerns experienced by civil society. (http://www.livingknowledge.org/) ENoLL is the international federation of benchmarked Living Labs in Europe and worldwide. It provides co- creation, user engagement, test and experimentation facilities targeting innovation in many different domains. (http://www.openlivinglabs.eu/) EUSEA is an international knowledge-sharing platform and accelerator of innovation in the fields of public engagement. The association addresses experts involved in public engagement activities across Europe. (http://www.eusea.info/) 16
  • 17. EXAMPLE – SPARKS PROJECT Sparks is an ambitious engagement project on the topic of technology shifts in health and medicine in multiple countries. Sparks has organized an interactive touring exhibition and innovative participatory activities such as science cafés, pop-up science shops, incubation activities and scenario workshops. Creative disruptions —in the form of artistic inputs and questioning— help it to engage more stakeholders. Sparks’ methodology emphasizes interdisciplinary (science, art, policy, industry, research, science education) and participatory approaches to promote RRI in relation to health. This is a highly relevant research topic which is able to motivate citizens’ and other stakeholders’ engagement in science and research. (http://www.sparksproject.eu/) 17
  • 19. ‘Engagement means that all actors – women and men – are on board. The underrepresentation of women must be addressed. Research institutions, in particular their human resources management, need to be modernized. The gender dimension must be integrated in research and innovation content’ (EC, 2012) GENDER EQUALITY 19
  • 20. GENDER EQUALITY Gender Balance in decision making -European Commission aims at 40% of the under- represented sex in expert groups and evaluation panels. -H2020, however, aims at 50% for the under- represented sex in expert groups and evaluation panels. -Inclusion of gender experts in expert groups and evaluation panels. Gender balance in research teams -Funding applications request promotion of gender balance at all levels in their teams and in management structures. -Commitment to promote equal opportunities between men and women in grant agreements. Gender dimension in the content of R&I -R&I need to adequately take into account the needs, behaviours and attitudes of both women and men. -Consider gender-specific research to fill knowledge gaps. -Gender is an important factor in excellent research. Source: http://ec.europa.eu/research/swafs/index.cfm?pg=policy&lib=gender & https://www.rri- tools.eu/documents/10184/193151/Explaining_RRI_Share.pptx/ 20
  • 21. GENDER EQUALITY Gender in research as a mark of excellence A practical toolkit that comprises an overall introduction into gender and research and shows how gender is interwoven with all aspects of research. It then examines in pragmatic terms how the gender dimension of research content contributes to excellence in research. (https://www.yellowwindow.com/genderinresearch) Genport is a community and repository of resources, projects, organisations, events and experiences regarding gender issues and science. (http://www.genderportal.eu/) Case studies analysis of Gendered innovations and knowledge change in basic science, engineering & technological development, environment, food & nutrition, health & medicine, transport and communication science. (http://ec.europa.eu/research/science- society/document_library/pdf_06/gendered_inno vations.pdf)21
  • 22. EXAMPLE – GENDERED INNOVATIONS IN BASIC SCIENCE ‘Gendered Innovations: 1. Studying sex differences in animal models has led to new treatments for traumatic brain injury (TBi). 2. Accounting for pregnancy, estrous cycle, and menopausal status in animal models has revealed the biological influence of hormones on basic molecular pathways and has been important to understanding certain autoimmune diseases. 3. Regulators have considered sex in order to improve animal models for toxicity; this has led to stronger environmental health standards.’ (EC, 2013, 15) (http://ec.europa.eu/research/science- society/document_library/pdf_06/gendered_innovations.pdf) 22
  • 23. ‘In order to be responsible, research and innovation must be both transparent and accessible. Our fourth key is to make Open Access a reality. This means giving free online access to the results of publicly-funded research (publications and data). This will boost innovation and further increase the use of scientific results by all societal actors’ (EC, 2012) OPEN ACCESS 23
  • 24.

The project brings together a consortium of eighteen partners. […] As part of these efforts, students’ competences at all levels are also strengthened as current and future researchers, entrepreneurs, policy- makers and citizens at large. Eighteen educational modules are co- created as part of the FIT4FOOD2030 City Labs, which are hosted by various science centres and museums, educational organisations and science shops. These educational modules address research and innovation on food systems and touch upon topics such as circularity, resource efficiency, nutrition and health, as well as climate and sustainability.
