Nucleus Conference 2017

The EU-funded NUCLEUS project will be hosting a conference to update participants on the project’s Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) roadmap and strategy for the development of 30 NUCLEI sites, taking place in Hannover, Germany, from 5 to 6 October 2017.

5 October 2017 - 6 October 2017
Hannover, Germany

The conference will include presentations of results from the second year of the project’s life which has included testing new strategies for embedding RRI in academic environments.

The Horizon 2020 funded NUCLEUS project acknowledges that research institutions do not exist in isolation, but interact with many other stakeholders in society, including policymakers, the media, economy, public engagement and civil society. Each stakeholder group in society has unique specialisations and goals, but can have productive interactions that enable them to address more complex challenges and tasks together.

The project addresses how RRI can be implemented by the 'nucleus' of a university or research institution; the governance that directs the policy and culture of an organisation.
