Recently, getting people from the community to actively take part in data collection and research has become an increasingly popular method of getting society to feel connected to research. This is known as Citizen Science, and although it is a distinct practice, it certainly has links to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) approaches, especially when it comes to open science and public engagement.
To explore the interconnectivity of these two approaches, ResBios and StepChange project organise an online discussion on March 28th (14:00-15:30 CET) about how RRI and citizen science can be used to enhance research, with a particular focus on open science and public engagement in the fields of bioscience research. By combining their shared experiences the event will present the theory and practice of employing these principles and how they could be applied to future projects.
The event will count on the contributions from:
- Dr. phil. René von Schomberg – the Kate Hamburger Kolleg, International Centre for advanced studies: Cultures of Research
Prof Carla Montesano – ResBios Project – Università degli Studi di Roma Tor Vergata
Prof Elena Buzan – ResBios Project and Step Change – University of Primorska
Dr. Carolina Doran – European Citizen Science Association
