RRING will align its impacts to contribute to Responsible Research and Innovation
What is Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI)?
Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) implies that societal actors (researchers, citizens, policymakers, business, third sector organisations, etc.) work together during the whole research and innovation process in order to better align both the process and its outcomes with the values, needs and expectations of society.
In practice, RRI is implemented as a package that includes multi-actor and public engagement in research and innovation, enabling easier access to scientific results, the take-up of gender and ethics in the research and innovation content and process, and formal and informal science education.

THE SIX PILLARS OF RESPONSIBLE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION
Ethics is fundamental in RRI development, because we all collaborate for a common objective under the same guidelines.
Gender equality is synonymous with development and progress, in a modern world without discrimination.
OPEN ACCESS & DATA
This new community will give access to information and practices in RRI around the world.
Science helps us to understand the world and a development in studies of this type, will benefit us to take care of it as it deserves.
It is everyone’s job to learn to respect nature and to know how to take care of it, for which an awareness is necessary.
It is also the government’s task to take charge of the norms and guidelines for the care of the world around us and to punish bad acts.
10 KEY AREAS
RELATING TO THE RECOMMENDATION ON SCIENCE AND SCIENTIFIC RESEARCHERS
Science is part of Member States’ efforts to develop more humane, just and inclusive societies and serves to ideals of peace and welfare of humankind, meaningfully interact with society, use scientific knowledge in an inclusive and accountable manner to inform national policy and decision making, promote science as a common good, freedoms, rights and responsibilities of researchers, provide access to education and employment, ethics of science and research integrity and in general enable environment for science and research.
17 Sustainable Development Goals
RRING will align its impacts to contribute to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Grand Challenges.
World leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda) with the SDGs as its core. The EU was instrumental in shaping the global 2030 Agenda, which is fully consistent with Europe’s vision and has now become the world’s blueprint for global sustainable development.
SDG5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
RRING strives to present the unique experiences of our female researchers to empower future researchers and innovators. With our project we are pursuing gender equality within academia and science, which is a cornerstone of reaching not only SDG5 but also contributing to SDG4.
We need to encourage and support girls and women achieve their full potential as scientific researchers and innovators.
