RRI Policies in Selected Countries

This part of the database provides short national reports that the correspondents delivered in the first, exploratory monitoring phase. The reports are based on the key documents on national RRI policies which the correspondents selected. The reports address the following questions:

  • What characterizes national policies towards RRI in the specific country?
  • What are the most prominent dimensions of RRI that materialize in these documents?
  • Which aspects of RRI are addressed?
  • What major mechanisms exist to support national goals in regards to RRI?

These reports will be expanded and deepened during the lifetime of the Res-AGorA project. You can filter and sort the reports by country, title and filename.

RRI in Selected Research Funding Organisations, Universities and Companies

The 1st round of RRItrends provided an initial understanding of (1) the dimensions of RRI that materialize in national policies, (2) the actors who are involved in the governance of RRI; (3) the techno-scientific domains that RRI governance addresses, (4) and the variety in policy mechanisms that are applied at the national level. It showed significant variation across these categories and heterogeneity across countries.

The 2nd round focuses on two themes that emerged from the 1st round, namely (1) ‘responsibility in organizations, funding research and innovation’ (public and private) (2) ‘responsibility in organizations, performing research and innovation’ (universities, companies). In their reports national correspondents addressed a number of research questions for each of these actors.
