Call for Applications to test the HEIRRI training materials

The HEIRRI project calls on higher education institutions from all continents interested in Responsible Research and Innovation and its integration into the curricula for a pilot test of two of the training programs and materials developed by the HEIRRI project. The selected institutions will pilot the testing of the HEIRRI materials in parallel with the Consortium member institutions (between June 2017 and April 2018). They will actively participate in the learning process, giving feedback on the materials and their use in their institutions.

The call offers to pilot the "Train-the-trainer" and one of the following of their choice.

The two best-evaluated applications will receive a scholarship of 2.000€ each (priority will be given to applications from developing countries) and up to 1.000€ for travel and accommodation expenses to participate in the second HEIRRI conference (April 2018). The awarded institutions will participate in the second HEIRRI Conference, where they will share their experiences with a wider audience and present future plans related to the introduction of RRI teaching in their institutions.

Applications will be accepted from 1st March to 30th April 2017 (both included). They must be submitted in English, together with an attached motivation statement, through this submission form.
