Assist. Prof. Dr. Sanela Klarić, Assist. Prof. Dr. Ahmed El Sayed, and Malcolm Duerod, MBA submitted an abstract for their paper "Bio-Based Student Pavilion: A Platform for Responsible Research Impact". Their paper was chosen by the HEIRRI Horizon2020 project as a concrete example that practiced RRI principles.
Senior Teaching Assistant at the International Malcolm Duerod traveled to Vienna to present the paper's poster, attended the conference and discussed the project with representatives from HEIRRI (Higher Education Institutions and Responsible Research and Innovation).
"Our poster about the Bio-Based Student Pavilion was chosen as an example of Responsible Research Impact (RRI) in action. HEIRRI is a Horizon2020 project that trains teachers and students in responsible research practices in university context", said Malcolm.
The 2nd HEIRRI Conference “Education towards a responsible society, transforming universities through RRI” presented the results of nearly three years of project activities designed to promote the integration of RRI within the education of scientists, engineers and other professionals involved in the R&D process. Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) offers a framework in which the Research and Innovation system can respond to societal issues in an ethical, transparent and inclusive way, allowing for the engagement of stakeholders to dialogue and encouraging reflection.
