Call for developing governance for the advancement of Responsible Research and Innovation H2020-GARRI-2015-1 Closed!


The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020) is implemented by specific programme and work programmes.

The aim of the specific objective 'Science with and for society' (Part V) is to build effective cooperation between science and society, to recruit new talent for science and to pair scientific excellence with social awareness and responsibility.


Actions foreseen within this call for proposals include the following topics:

  • GARRI-2-2015: Responsible Research and Innovation in industrial context. Evidence is needed on how the RRI approach, in particular the opening up of the innovation process to social actors, can improve the development process and the quality of the final outcomes of research and innovation in the industrial context. Existing initiatives such as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) have set first steps but improved business governance is needed that deeply embeds creativity, scalability, responsiveness, "glocality", circularity and societal engagement.
  • GARRI-4-2015: Innovative approach to release and disseminate research results and measure their impact. The European Commission promotes a culture of openly sharing information among researchers, innovative industries and citizens. The technology continues to improve, thus making some innovative approaches possible. It is important to ensure that high levels of quality are maintained for research results. The release and dissemination of research results is a crucial element, but so are the measurement of their quality and impact with the right indicators. There is a need to examine the situation from A to Z and adapt to the new solutions that better suit the needs of researchers, innovators, the public and funding bodies, and that are relevant to new technologies and expanding amounts of information.
