Rring Project – Creating A Global Network

THE RRI Global Network gathered at MaREI for the kick-off meeting of the RRING Project. The project which is in partnership with an impressive list includes the likes of the Institute for Social Sciences in the 21st Century (ISS21) University College Cork, UNESCO, Wageningen University & Research, Fraunhofer and Earth System Governance – Future Earth to name but a few, aims to bring Responsible Research & Innovation (RRI) into the linked up global world to promote mutual learning and collaboration in RRI.

There has almost been two decades of European initiatives to promote and progress Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in academia, research and research performing organisations (RPO). As there has been a wealth of RRI projects and consortium, it has become increasingly obvious that some methodology is required to capture all the knowledge and use it to drive and consolidate the great progress made.

RRING will align RRI to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a global common denominator.

The six Pillars of RRI are Ethics, GE, Open Access/Data, Science education, Public Engagement and Governance and the disciplines specifically mentioned in the call were Digital, Single Market, the Energy Union, Bio-Economy and Waste Management.

The coordination of the RRING project will be hosted in MaREI through Senior research fellow, Gordon Dalton
