Enhancing Responsible Biosciences

Structural Tranformation to Attain Responsible BIOSciences
STARBIOS2 is a European project that received funding from the Horizon 2020 programme. It aims to implement the Responsible Research and Innovation-RRI approach in research institutions through Action Plans. A model and guidelines will be elaborated based on the Action Plans feedback and experience to facilitate the implementation of RRI in other research institutions.

STARBIOS2 Consortium – Kick-Off Meeting, Rome July 2016

Objectives & Outcomes


STARBIOS2 contributes to the advancement of the RRI strategy by fostering structural change in research institutions


Action Plans (APs)


Implementation of the RRI approach and practices in 6 research departments of biosciences. 3 further APs will be implemented in non-European instutions


Learning Process

Learning Process


Acquisition of new practical knowledge on RRI-oriented structural change processes through APs


Guidelines - RRIModel

Guidelines – RRI Model


Elaboration of guidelines and a model for research institutions to support the implementation and uptake of RRI approach


Responsible Research and Innovation – RRI






The European Commission defines RRI as “a process for better aligning research and innovation with the values, needs and expectations of society. It implies close cooperation between all stakeholders in various strands comprising: science education, definition of research agenda, access to research results and the application of new knowledge in full compliance with gender and ethics considerations.”

RRI comprises 5 key elements:

  • Public Engagement
  • Gender
  • Education
  • Open access
  • Ethics
