Introduction to responsible research and innovation - the citizen science aspect

Organisers: Ellinogermaniki AgogiCulturePolis
 
Duration: 1.5 hours
Responsible Research & Innovation (RRI) is a way of researching that takes a long-term perspective on the type of world in which we want to live. It can strengthen research projects by emphasising openness, transparency, diversity, inclusiveness and adaptation to changes. Essentially, RRI aims to create collaborative frameworks in which citizens engage with scientists, entrepreneurs, decisions makers and other groups to work towards sustainable, ethically acceptable and socially desirable outcomes.

Workshop abstract

The workshop will provide an overview of RRI, emphasising the potential of Citizen Science: what does it mean, what it involves and how it can help mainstream scientific knowledge. 

The workshop will draw Citizen Science experience from the GROW Observatory

GROW is a European-wide Citizens’ Observatory engaging thousands of growers, scientists and others passionate about the land. It combines data contributed by individuals, groups and publicly available scientific data to generate new open knowledge and practices. GROW looks at how this data can contribute to services and applications that help forecast and prepare for extreme climate events, such as heat waves and floods.

Through simple experiments, online courses, online discussions and physical meet-ups, participants discover together, using simple tools to better manage soil and grow food, while contributing to vital scientific environmental monitoring. In this way, it empowers citizens to understand their soils and explore global environmental soil issues by becoming citizen scientists 

Using this real-life example of Citizen Science, participants will be able make sense of RRI, to discover ways of bringing the concept to life and help them understand how it can be useful in their own work.

Target Audience

Civil Society, Growers & Farmers, Researchers, Educators, Entrepreneurs, Policy Makers.
