PROSO Multi-Actor Conference “Engaging society for responsible research and innovation (RRI): New options to move forward”

The aim of this conference is to jointly discuss and (further) develop innovative ideas, options and initiatives to promote societal engagement for RRI. We will present preliminary project results on barriers and incentives as well as policy and practice options concerning the engagement of third sector organizations and citizens in publicly funded research and innovation.

These results will be actively considered and critically discussed by a broad range of R&I stakeholders, namely policy makers at European and national level, research management and funding organizations, business and industry representatives, science education and communication actors, researchers, as well as civil society organizations.

The outcome of this multi-actor conference is a major contribution to a Policy & Practice Guide that will be handed over to policy-makers, research funding organizations as well as civil society organizations. The Guide will offer policy and practice options for encouraging societal engagement for RRI.
