Different approaches to RRI Evaluation
Tuesday 23 November, 14:00 – 15:30 CET, online
Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) has become a highly influential policy agenda as the European Commission has encouraged its implementation in research funding and performing organisations in the past decade, namely through Horizon 2020. Along with the increased attention came a need to monitor progress and evaluate the impacts and benefits of RRI initiatives. This is not an easy task, however, as the RRI terminology has been criticised for being too vague and as initiatives can be implemented at many different levels, including national, region, local, organisational or even in individual practices, in diverse contexts. The MoRRI project (2014-2018) conceptualized and implemented the first RRI monitoring system in Europe and The SUPER MoRRI project (2019-2023) continues this work.
Keynote speaker: Niels Mejlgaard
Panelists: Alessandro Deserti, Malene Vinther Christensen, and Anne Loeber
In this webinar, Niels Mejlgaard will speak about the journey from the MoRRI into the SUPER MoRRI project, and the opportunities and challenges in developing indicators for RRI. Three panelists, Alessandro Deserti, Malene Vinther Christensen, and Anne Loeber will present three vastly different approaches to evaluate RRI initiatives from the SISCODE, GRACE and NewHoRRIzon projects.
Moderator: Lise Degn, Aarhus University, GRACE expert partner
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.
