Do you have questions on how to pursue the so-called responsible research and innovation (RRI) way of working? Are you working with scientists from other disciplines or with societal stakeholders? Are you interested in sharing best and bad practices in such collaborations? Would you like to get to know RRI peers?
Then our after-summer school might be right for you! We offer you a two-day after-summer school that explores RRI, including interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research collaborations.
During the after-summer school, a group of experienced RRI researchers (see below) will embark on a journey together with you and other experts coming from ministries, science advisory councils, etc. to learn about issues like: theoretical foundations of RRI, RRI methodology, and drivers and barriers of RRI.
We will also have interactive discussions about real-life cases and experiences, and offer you practical tips for making collaborations work. The aim is to share ideas about RRI and reflect with you on your role in interdisciplinary research projects that involve both alpha, beta, and gamma sciences. You, as an early-career researcher, are in a specifically challenging situation in such projects, and training and reflection as well as having a support network of fellow early-career researchers might help. We want to bundle ideas and best practices that are shared, as input for further inter- and transdisciplinary research.
The after-summer school is aimed at early-career researchers (PhD students, postdoc researchers) coming from various disciplines (alpha, beta, gamma) and working at Dutch universities. The school takes place on 6-7 October 2022 at Soeterbeeck conference center in Ravenstein (near Nijmegen). The registration fee is 100 euro and includes accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Details on payment will follow upon registration.
When registering, please mention:
And please reflect on the questions below in a short text of 200-300 words (total for all questions):
