Problem Based Learning (PBL) for
teaching Responsible Research and Innovation

Based on the conducted RRI stock-taking inventory containing results of RRI projects, state-of-the-art cases and RRI practices as well as RRI learning initiatives, a set of RRI training programs (BA, MA, PhD., summer schools, MOOCs) has been designed. As a next step, formative materials for each of these training programs will be created. They will enhance students’ knowledge and skills to develop viable solutions to specific problems related to R&I, integrating theory and practice.

PBL is a student-centered pedagogical approach that will be used to develope these HEIRRI training programs. Get to know more about this methodology here.

New research platform on RRI: “Responsible Research and Innovation in Academic Practice”

At the University of Vienna, currently 19 research platforms on a variety of interdisciplinary questions and topics exist. These research platforms are considered tools for fostering interdisciplinary research; consequently, a precondition for founding such a platform is a collaboration of research groups and academics of different disciplines and institutes.

The new research platform “Responsible Research and Innovation in Academic Practice” aims to investigate the conditions for responsibility in particularly the academic research context.
