Scientific & Technological Impacts
Strengthening human capital in R&I
RRI – Responsible Research and Innovation
We apply Responsible Research and Innovation in all our project activities following the RRI dimensions and by applying the RRI Roadmap.
01. Public engagement:
From the start of the project, we inform and work with all types of stakeholders, including citizens, to map concerns and issues, to collect insights and ideas.
02. Open science:
Results including our toolbox NGTs will be openly available and free of charge. Our publications will be open access. Find our results here.
03. Science education:
We are creating awareness by explaining and educating about gene editing and the positive impact they may have for a zero-pollution agriculture, aquaculture, food industry and bioeconomy.
04. Considering gender issues:
We are carefully considering any gender-specific perceptions in our project work. Our consortium has women and men working equally and voice equally their opinions without any prejudice. In our workshops, we are striving to involve women and men and to improve perception to consider gender differences in our research and innovation processes.
We are all working under the European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity ensuring that our research and innovation activities follow scientific ethical integrity and regulatory norms and at the same time flag any ethical gaps that may arise. We have defined quality control procedures and we are peer-reviewing each other’s work to ensure a responsible research and innovation ethos.
We are transparent and we base our work on responsible scientific conduct. We are working in an honest, respectful, reliable, and accountable project environment. We are discussing all activities, results and with our external stakeholder advisory group.
We are providing scientific and transparent information to all stakeholders for informed decisions.
We are studying European governance NGT issues and we are striving to provide truthful and reliable results.
We are aiming towards predictability and proportionality, and also inclusiveness for a more engaging science-to-society relationship.
