Responsible Research and Innovation
Networked Globally (RRING)

RRING AIM

BRING RESPONSIBILITY TO THE WORLD

Bring Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) into the linked up global world to promote mutual learning and collaboration in RRI.

CREATE A GLOBAL COMMUNITY

Formation of the global RRING community network and the development and mobilisation of a global Open Access Responsible Research & Innovation knowledge base.

ALIGN RESEARCH AND INNOVATION WITH SDGs

Align Responsible Research & Innovation (RRI) to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a global common denominator.

Who We Are

We are a coalition that has activism at its core. We seek to make research and innovation systems everywhere more responsible, inclusive, efficient and responsive as an integral part of society and economy.

We started as a coalition of organizations and individuals with a grand vision supported by EU-funding in 2018 to carry out a research programme, and evolved to become an open and welcoming community, spreading and sharing the ideas of responsible research and innovation.

The 2017 global agreement called the Recommendation on Science and Scientific Researchers set global standards that we promote.

The RRING community will not only support the national assessment and reporting processes that examine these norms and standards but will also enable practice and knowledge exchanges with scientific communities globally, to seek ways to improve, apply and develop specially-designed tools.

RRING Global Community

Learning from best practices in Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI)

Although there is a wealth of projects and consortium in this sector, a certain methodology is needed to use the acquired knowledge to drive and achieve great progress. That is why RRING project seeks to connect researchers and research organizations into a strong community or network of professionals for responsible research and innovation (RRI).

A strong network enables better mutual learning and cooperation in responsible research and innovation. We are in the process of creating a global network named the RRING community to develop and foster open access to a global knowledge base on Responsible Research and Innovation.

Thus, RRING in this case will not provide a strategy that should be implemented from top to bottom. Instead, we want to use a bottom-up approach, learning from best practices in Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) globally and from the professionals worldwide.

This powerful network of science professionals makes a new RRING community, established to develop a connected RRI world.

LEARN FROM OUR PARTNERS

LEARN FROM OUR PARTNERS

The RRING project acknowledges that each region of the world is advancing its own agenda on RRI. This is why RRING has a sense, which is to bring all these developments together under a new community.

UNIFY THE BEST OF US

UNIFY THE BEST OF US

Also, increase coherence and convergence in RRI will be achieved via a bottom-up approach, learning from best practices in RRI globally and from linkages, via the new RRING community, to develop the RRI linked-up world.

EU to roll out new approach to managing Horizon Europe and R&D policy

The European Commission’s research directorate (DG-RTD) is to focus more on policy development and work more closely with member states in the reform of national research systems and implementation of the European Research Area (ERA), following a reshuffle of the organisation that will see oversight of the implementation of EU research programmes delegated to a […]

Changing How We Evaluate Research Is Difficult – but Not Impossible

Declarations can inspire revolutionary change, but the high ideals inspiring the revolution must be harnessed to clear guidance and tangible goals to drive effective reform. When the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) was published in 2013, it catalogued the problems caused by the use of journal-based indicators to evaluate the performance of individual […]

Collaborations with artists go beyond communicating the science

Exhilarating, challenging, enlightening, stimulating, inspiring, fun. These were some of the words that Nature readers used to describe their experiences of art–science collaborations in a series of articles on partnerships between artists and researchers. Nearly 40% of the roughly 350 people who responded to an accompanying poll said they had collaborated with artists; and almost all said they […]

What is responsible innovation, and why should tech giants take it seriously?

Tech firms are now some of the biggest on the planet. Apple became the world’s first trillion-dollar company, while Amazon, Alphabet (the parent company of Google), Microsoft and Facebook make up the rest of the top five companies on the planet by market value. Most of these companies have grown to their current size in […]
