ORION – Open Responsible research and Innovation to further Outstanding kNowledge
We are co-operating with our colleagues from CEITEC research institute on the ORION project, which aims to induce evidence-based institutional and cultural changes within the research community, including scientists, funders and other key stakeholders. Our long term vision is to embed Open Science and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) principles (ethics, gender, governance, open access, public engagement, and science education) in Research Funding and Performing Organisations (RFPOs).
This will be achieved by initially carrying out an assessment exercise on Open Science awareness and practice in RFPOs and organising an open consultation among targeted stakeholders. We will then co-design and perform “co-creation experiments” with the different RRI actors.
Our experiments will tackle three specific challenges of Open Science:
1. Opening up the research engine
2. Identifying risks and opportunities presented by disruptive technologies
3. Running citizen science (CS) in fundamental research
