The February 18 (Funding applications – How to incorporate RRI, SDG and RSSR into funding applications?) offered plenty of opportunities for interaction and learning about different perspectives from across the globe.

In this case, the focus was on the requirements of different funding organizations, and included, for example, insights from Japan, Ireland, and Lithuania, among others. The workshop also included examples from funded projects as well as a practical exercise to support the incorporation of the concepts associated with RRI, the SDGs and the RSSR in proposal writing.

  • Examined Global Responsible Research and Innovation based on the findings of the RRING project.
  • Explored the UNESCO Recommendation for Science and Scientific Researchers, how it relates to the SDGs and why it is important that these are incorporated in research.
