What is GRACE

GRACE (Grounding RRI Actions to Achieve Institutional Changes in European Research Funding and Performing Organisations) supports the European Commission’s objective of spreading and embedding responsible research and innovation (RRI) in the European Research area.

The project will develop a set of Grounding Actions (GAs) in six Research Funding and Performing Organisations (RFPOs).

This will be the basis for the tailor-made 8-year Roadmap towards RRI for each implementing organisation, ensuring its sustainability and full implementation over the long-term.



rapidly and effectively RRI-oriented grounding actions (GAs) that will result in a set of clearly identifiable institutional arrangements.


a self-analysis based on their needs, expectations and specific characteristics.


on the existing knowledge on RRI implementation thanks to the involvement of expert partners and mutual-learning processes.


roadmaps that will be sustainable over time and result in RRI-oriented policy.
