Acronym: FIT4RRI

Project Title: FIT4RRI – Fostering Improved Training Tools For Responsible Research

Total Cost: 165625,00€

Funding: 165625,00€


FIT4RRI moves from the basic assumption that there is a serious gap between the potential role Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and Open Science (OS) could play in helping Research Funding and Performing Organisations (RFPOs) to manage the rapid transformation processes affecting science (especially the science-in-society aspects) and the actual impact RRI and OS are currently having on RFPOs, research sectors and national research systems.

The project will act on 2 key factors:

Training – Enhancing competencies and skills through an improvement of the training offer currently available in terms of training tools, actors and strategies.

Governance – Institutionally embed RRI and OS practices and approaches by promoting the diffusion of more advanced governance settings (organizational practices, tools, arrangements and culture).

With the FIT4RRI project, we expect three major impacts:

  • Enrich and improve the quality of existing training materials on RRI and OS;
  • Increase general knowledge on RRI and OS practices by sharing experience across different disciplines;
  • Contribute to changes in Research Funding and Performing Organisations (RFPOs) governance settings (including institutional changes and stakeholders’ behaviours) that are consistent with open science and RRI.
