Call for Abstracts: 2nd HEIRRI Conference:
In this 2nd HEIRRI Conference we welcome contributions presenting RRI practices, projects, programmes and initiatives that demonstrate the application of RRI in higher education. The Conference will be held in Vienna, Austria, next April 27th, 2018.
Specifically, we would like to invite applications that put a spotlight on activities designed to integrate more democratic governance in research and innovation with an emphasis on positive societal impacts along with a promotion and application of a more anticipatory, reflexive, inclusive and responsive approach to research and innovation into higher education curricula. The main emphasis should be placed on specific educational outcomes and achievements. We welcome applications from different countries, context and disciplines, both from the humanities and the natural and social sciences.
