M-ERA-NET is proud to present its first "Guidelines for Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in the context of materials science". RRI is a cross-cutting element in our materials research funding network. M-ERA.NET will contribute to a wider public debate on the impact of materials research, ethically, for relevant SDGs and a circular economy and will encourage applicants to take RRI aspects in consideration when constructing their research proposal.
This is a ‘live document’ developed by M-ERA.NET in cooperation with external RRI advisors taking into consideration input provided by materials scientists and funding organisations. These RRI guidelines were developed in a co-creation process including a workshop with the community.
This document should help
- applicants to M-ERA.NET calls
- evaluators of proposals submitted to M-ERA.NET calls
- funding organisations
