RRI: responsible research and innovation

The I3PT, with its ethical and social commitment, is in line with the principles of the RRI and promotes in its institution an inclusive research and innovation, oriented to the society where its results are desired, ethical and necessary and a research and innovation that is done under the principle of economic and environmental sustainability.

What is RRI?

RRI is the acronym for Responsible Research and Innovation, which aims to achieve sustainable, ethically acceptable and socially desirable results. It seeks to ensure that all stakeholders / stakeholders work together in the research and innovation process.

The RRI contemplates different agendas necessary to achieve this purpose:

  1. Citizen participation: All actors must be involved in the research and innovation process in order to align the results with the values, needs and expectations of European society.
  2. Gender equality: consider the gender dimension at each stage of R & D & I to improve the quality and social impact of the results. Promote teams with a gender balance throughout the organizational structure of the Institute. Take into account the gender dimension in research and innovation planning to improve the quality and relevance of results.
  3. Science education: improving the current educational model to train citizens in the skills and knowledge that allows them to participate in the haste of decisions related to research and innovation and also with the aim of increasing the number of researchers promoting scientific vocations ..
  4. Ethics: takes into account the integrity of research: preventing unacceptable research practices; and science and society: the ethical acceptance of scientific and technological advances.
  5. Open access: open access from the beginning of scientific work can improve the quality of research and facilitate rapid innovation, constructive collaborations between collaborators and productive dialogue with civil society.
  6. Governance: governance must be robust and adaptable enough for the unpredictable development of research and innovation and share responsibility among a wide variety of actors. Provide governance instruments to foster shared responsibility.
