External: NUCLEUS session at Science in Public Conference 2017

July 10, 2017 - July 12, 2017

NUCLEUS: Making upstream mainstream 

Healthy relationships require open communication and respect for values, expectations and goals – and the relationship between research and society is no exception. Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) is an approach to research that embraces this shared responsibility throughout the entire R&I process. NUCLEUS is a four-year, Horizon 2020 project investigating how to make RRI a reality in universities and research institutions.

What institutional barriers prevent research organisations from engaging with their stakeholders to align research with society’s needs? How can these obstacles be overcome? NUCLEUS is a major H2020  project that not only investigates these challenges, but will also recommend and implement new strategies to tackle them. It is an international, transdisciplinary consortium of 24 institutions from 15 countries that is developing new ways to help scientific institutions respond to societal needs and challenges. In Europe, South Africa and China NUCLEUS will establish 30 international test sites to bring RRI to life, making upstream mainstream.

Don’t miss our “NUCLEUS: Making upstream mainstream” session with NUCLEUS partners Peter Broks (Rhine-Waal University), Alexander Gerber (Rhine-Waal University) and Caitriona Mordan (Dublin City University)!

Date and time: Tuesday, 11 July, 13:15-14:45
