By engaging Orbit for a workshop on RRI your organisation introduces staff to RRI and builds up capability in RRI. This has numerous benefits. It helps you to:
- Improve research quality by reflecting on social and ethical concerns
- Comply with EPSRC strategy
- Further your impact agenda by finding meaningful ways of engaging with stakeholders
- Strengthen your REF environment statement by providing meaningful training
- Comply with Concordats
- Conform to general standards and good practice.
Overall, and most importantly, RRI aims to ensure that research process, outcomes and purposes are aligned with society’s expectations. The workshop will therefore help orient your work towards the public good.
The workshop will be delivered by an expert on RRI affiliated with Orbit.
The workshop and interactive format works effectively for a maximum of 30 participants, and clients are requested to provide a suitable room, with a computer projector and a suitable number of whiteboards / flipcharts and material to allow for small group work of groups with up to six members.
