STARBIOS2 : implementing the Responsible Research through Action Plans

STARBIOS2 (Structural Transformation to Attain Responsible BIOSciences) is a project (2016-2020) funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme

STARBIOS2 aims to contribute to the advancement of the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) strategy which underpins Horizon 2020.

The STARBIOS2 project - - coordinated by University of Rome Tor Vergata (Italy) - - will design and implement Action Plans (APs) oriented to attain the RRI structural change in six research departments of bioscience of six institutions based in EC member states (Italy, Germany, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Poland and the UK).

The APs will be self-tailored: each of them will be conceived, designed and implemented by the institution involved and will take into account the institutional, social and cultural context where it will be carried out. It will include, in a coordinated way, five sets of actions, respectively addressing the RRI 5 keys.

RRI is a new approach to reinforce interactions between science and society, with respect to five key issues: public engagementopen accessgenderethicsscience education.

The experience produced within the APs will be used to define guidelines and develop a tailored model  for bioscience research aimed at supporting RRI structural change in this field in Europe and worldwide.
