Promoting RRI at university level through community research.
About the EnRRICH project
The Enhancing Responsible Research and Innovation through Curricula in Higher education (EnRRICH) project promoted the improvement of the capacity of students and staff in higher education to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes to support the embedding of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in curricula by responding to the research needs of society as expressed by civil society organisations (CSOs). The project did this by identifying, developing, piloting, and disseminating good practice and relevant resources to embed the RRI keys in academic curricula across Europe. Through sharing learning and initiating discussion and debates at institutional, national and international levels both within the consortium and beyond it, the EnRRICH project created a better awareness of, and enhance the policy context for, RRI in curricula and thereby produced more responsible and responsive graduates and researchers. This project focused on the co-creation of research to enable students to acquire the broad range of skills, knowledge and experience needed for a knowledge economy and knowledge society to flourish.
