RRI Toolbox

RRI Toolbox

Background of the RRI toolbox

Within the framework of the EU-project Starbios2-Structural Transformation to Sustainable BIOSciences-the idea of a RRI Toolbox has emerged. First, the idea of a Gender Toolbox of the Fraunhofer Institute was taken up and then extended to include the further RRI dimensions „Societal Engagement“, „Education“, „Ethics“ and „Open Access“. The toolbox provides a compact overview of measures and practical examples of the University of Bremen regarding the individual RRI dimensions, as well as general information.
