The overriding theme for this course is `learning by doing¿. After reading about some of the basic theories behind the concept of RRI, its key aspects, its dimensions and its main implications, the course consists mainly of hands-on training relating to real cases and your own research. We offer you the opportunity to study alongside researchers whose backgrounds are different both culturally and thematically, and to maximize interactions in the different spaces the virtual classroom offers in order to share your experiences and learn from one another. RRI is still a concept in its definition phase, and is brought to life by the critical reflections you and other researchers make.
We also recommend that you read and reflect on all materials critically, trying at all times to look beyond authors¿ positions and to compare them with other perspectives.
