Bottom-up RRI initiatives
Tuesday 30 November, 2:00 – 3:15 pm CET
Are you interested in creating institutional changes at your organisation? Do you want to learn more about how to promote the embedding of RRI keys (Gender Equality, Science Education, Open Science, Research Ethics and Citizen Science) in your research? Sustainable institutional changes result from a collective effort where both top-down and bottom-up approaches are present and coordinated. This webinar will present inspiring practices of bottom-up initiatives driving to institutional changes carried out at research performing organisations. Practical examples will be given on how to mobilize a variety of actors, strategies for negotiations and which steps to follow for designing your own institutional action plan.
This webinar addresses students, early-career researchers starting (or willing to start) institutional change. From theory to practice, inspiring practices on bottom-up initiatives.

This event is part of the eight final webinars the GRACE project is holding every Tuesday from 26 October to 14 December, where project partners and external experts share their findings and provide useful knowledge to implement RRI in research performing and funding organisations
For almost three years, GRACE project partners have worked towards implementing fundamental institutional change in 6 research performing and funding organisations. With an intense mutual learning programme and a co-creation environment, six expert partners have supported six other partners in developing a set of specific RRI-orientated Grounding Actions in their organisation, paving the way for further institutional change.
