Responsible Research and Innovation

for the society betterness

About the programme

Over the last decades many efforts have tried to reduce the distance between science and society, leading to a European-wide approach in Horizon 2020 called Responsible Research and Innovation.

RRI seeks to bring issues related to research and innovation into the open, to anticipate their consequences, and to involve society in discussing how science and technology can help create the kind of world and society we want for generations to come.

RRI entails engaging all actors (from individual researchers and innovators to institutions and governments) through inclusive, participatory methodologies in all stages of R&I processes and in all levels of R&I governance (from agenda setting, to design, implementation, and evaluation).

Internet Institut Wien is actively engaged and also strongly promoting RRI. From targeted raising awareness campaigns through tangible research activities or joint projects. RRI is one of our strategic determination factors and we are open for partnership and active collaboration in this field.

Future is Open

This means opening up the innovation process to people with experience in fields other than academia and science. By including more people in the innovation process, knowledge will circulate more freely. This knowledge can then be used to develop products and services that can create new markets.

Open science

This is an approach to the scientific process that focuses on spreading knowledge as soon as it is available using digital and collaborative technology. This is a change from the standard practice of publishing results in scientific publications only at the end of the research process.

Open to the world

This means promoting international cooperation in the research community. Doing this will allow Europe to access the latest knowledge worldwide, recruit the best talent, tackle global challenges and create business opportunities in emerging markets.
