RRING project: Responsible Research and Innovation network globally
The project is a 3 year RIA, 22 partners, 18 countries, 6 subcontractors 
UNESCO is the lead partner
ICoRSA leads the creation of the RRING Global community.
The overall project aim is to bring Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) into the linked up global world to promote mutual learning and collaboration in RRI. This will be achieved by the formation of the global RRING community network and by the development and mobilisation of a global Open Access Responsible Research & Innovation knowledge base. RRING will align RRI to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a global common denominator. ICoRSA is leading the RRING research network and is responsible for implementing a one-year trial of the network in 2020.

5 EU Keys of RRI
1. Citizens and citizens’ associations engagement in science (Public Engagement -PE);
2. Formal and informal science education;
3. Gender equality in science;
4. Research ethics and integrity;
5. Open access to research results.

Why the RRING project
• Europe wanted the rest of World to adopt RRI
• Commissioned 2 projects to explored convergence (Progress was last project)
• At Progress final conference: Rest of the world said – No
– Regional differences
– Cultural differences
– Political differences
• SwafS14 scope to explore Linked up World RRI
