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.
Cape Town Workshop
Join us in Cape Town, South Africa for our workshop "The African and European Experience in Responsible Research and Open Science in Health and Biosciences: Towards a Common Vision?" 17-18 March 2020.
Applications are open until 31 January 2020.
The STARBIOS2 project has developed a model for how to promote the practice of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in bioscience research institutions. We have published a guideline document based on lessons learned. We now offer an introductory training on RRI in the biosciences and how to achieve structural change.
Join us 20 January, 27 January, 3 February or 17 February and learn how to use our model and guideline!
Guideline & model
Based on our experiences we developed a guideline and model for promoting the practice of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in bioscience research organisations.

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
- Open access
