ResBios Newsletter #1

Dear reader, 
What a year! It seems ages ago when the ResBios team met in Rome, in January of this year,
 to launch RRI grounding actions within four universities and research institutions in the field of Biosciences. We made plans, we agreed on ways of working, and we were supposed to meet in October. Plans and agreements were kept but we had to certainly adjust to the new conditions a world pandemic imposed on us. Regardless the challenges, we kept in touch and we accomplished our internal milestones.  This Newsletter is a peek into a paradoxical year, that kept as apart but at the same time, demonstrated that we are able to go beyond the barriers. That it's a matter of will, creativity and commitment. Happy read!

ResBios Open Dialogues: Webinar on Science communication with a Gender Perspective: what does this really mean? A closer look into biosciences 

What do we communicate when we communicate science? How do we do it and where? Whom are we addressing? Isn't the system the reason and consequence of inequities? How do we communicate this and moreover, what can science communication do to tackle these deficiencies and encourage inclusion for the greater good? In a social endeavour as science, considered as based on merits, competences and creativity, it's imperative to reflect, talk and take action in order to tackle equality distortions and injustice. The way we communicate science plays a key role in this. Join us!

The ResBios First Mutual Learning Workshop: bridging RRI Grounding Actions plans with the next phase==> implementation
by Daniele Mezzana, UNITOV
The relationship between science and society is very complex, full of perspectives but also dilemmas and uncertainties: so the interpretation and implementation of RRI require the contribution of many actors, it's not a one-person game.

Our first ResBios Mutual Learning Workshop took place online on 26 October 2020, and...

Triggering RRI-oriented changes in research organizations in the Biosciences
by Andrea Declich, Luciano D'Andrea and Maresa Berliri, Knowledge and Innovation, Italy

The detailed design of the Grounding Actions (GAs) foreseen in the ResBios project has been recently finalized. They will be implemented by 4 Research Performing Organizations (RPOs) who are going to implement for the first time RRI oriented actions. For this reason, we also define “beginners”. 

In Greece, DUTH University launched its Grounding Actions on Education
by Aglaia Pappa, DUTH University, Greece

On October 9, 2020, the DUTH core team of the ResBios project organized a meeting with the Directorate of Secondary Education Office of Evros and the High School Principals of the Alexandroupolis district. The meeting took place in accordance with the national health regulations for Covid-19. Associate Professor Dr. Alex Galanis, member of the core team of the ResBios at DUTH, presented the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) policy strategy and informed the stakeholders about our plans on Education.

Co-Change: collaboratively making the needed changes

Increased interactions between R&I stakeholders in our societies require changes at research funding and performing organisations to accept inputs from citizens and organisations that used to be considered outsiders to the world of R&I. Co-Change inspire such changes by introducing new practices in the areas of research ethics, open access, citizen engagement, gender equality and science education.

Check these two interviews to WP leaders, to learn their approach to change assessment and future-oriented evaluation methods:

Blog:  Uni Bremen team developed a series of reflective activities for scientists and research students visiting the outreach lab “Backstage Science” (BaSci Lab)
by Doris Elster, Uni Bremen

The implementation of RRI concepts into scientific institutions affords ways to integrate these concepts into existing institutional structures, teaching contents and scientific perspectives. Therefore, the Uni Bremen team developed a series of reflective activities for scientists on varying career levels, PhD students and pupils visiting the outreach lab “Backstage Science” (BaSci Lab).
