Responsible Research and Innovation at IrsiCaixa (RRI)

Among the different key actions that the EU has identified to be essential to develop Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), the Unit of Public Engagement on Health Research is centred on:

  • Ethics: to involve citizens in dialogue regarding ethical, legal and social aspects related to health research and new technologies.
  • Governance: to shape a framework that encourages responsible research and innovation.
  • Communication and public engagement: to inform, facilitate dialogue, consultation and collaboration.
  • Education: to decrease the gap between research and education, and to promote RRI among the younger population.
