12 EU-Countries working together for open and engaged research in Biosciences

Research organisations from across Europe kick-off EU-funded project ResBios, that will bring together Responsible Research and Innovation, Sustainable Development Goals and Open Science together in the field of Biosciences.

“We want to turn science affairs into social affairs” Professor Vittorio Colizzi.

With more than 25 representatives from the 12 EU-partners, the ResBios EU-funded project launched its activities in Villa Mondragone, Frascati, Italy, on the 23-24 January.

The EU-funded project is coordinated by the University of Rome Tor Vergata, and four European institutions have been selected for putting RRI into practice between January 2020 until December 2022: Ivan Franko University of Lviv, in Ukraine; Democritus University of Thrace in Greece, Marine Sciences Institute of the National Council of Scientific Research in Spain and the University of Zagreb in Croatia.

These four organizations, supported by other partners having already participated in STARBIOS2 (an EU project about RRI in biosciences), will implement a series of “Grounding Actions” based on key elements of RRI (gender, open access, science education, ethics and governance), the 4 dimensions of RRI (anticipation, reflexivity, inclusiveness, responsiveness), and guided by Sustainable Development Goals.
