This project was submitted as part of a European Horizon 2020 call for projects to strengthen Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) practices in the funding of research and innovation. RRI seeks to:

  • involve society in science and innovation - as far upstream as possible - so that results are in line with society values,
  • bring together the different aspects of the relationship between Research & Innovation (R & I) and society: public involvement, open access, gender equality, science education, ethics and governance.

GRRIP aims to promote and take account of research and responsible innovation by participating research operators and funders. Centrale Nantes and the LHEEA's involvement in this project will take place within the framework of the IUML (Institut Universitaire Mer et Littoral) of which Centrale Nantes is a member. The idea is to use the budget to develop an interdisciplinary call for projects - in collaboration with the private sector, local politicians and civil society - involving the sea; and to select and evaluate research projects which take significant account of the RRI approach.

The project will run for 4 years. 12 bodies have joined in this project including University College Cork (Ireland), which is the main project sponsor. The other partners are Portuguese, Spanish, British and Dutch.
