The action assists the development of openly available curricula that embed all five RRI keys (societal engagement, gender equality and gender in research and innovation content, open access, science education and ethics), in a comprehensive approach for students, teachers, professional trainers and academic staff of Higher Education Institutions and other higher education establishments. Inspiration and good practices should be drawn from both the EU and third countries. Higher Education Institutions, other higher education establishments, research organisations and relevant institutions, as well as associations thereof, such as national science academies, and civil society organizations (CSOs), Science Museums and Science Centres should work together to explore the state of the art and develop a comprehensive methodological approach for RRI curricula. The creation of partnerships to this end would be an asset. The proposals shall provide ways for the testing, dissemination and widespread uptake of course material by academia in Europe and elsewhere. Ideally, both curricula and practical case-studies, theoretical and practical exercises, also embedding policy relevance, should be made easily and freely accessible on-line using the latest multimedia support. They shall benefit stakeholders, including business and industry, beyond participants in several educational systems in Europe; materials/results shall be equally relevant to other countries. The proposals shall identify the choice of the countries be based on transparent, appropriate criteria. An International Cooperation dimension is essential. A link shall be established with RRI Tools – a project to foster Responsible Research and Innovation for Society, with Society; links shall also be made with the education experts of the project’s Advisory Board. Moreover, working on making a link – where applicable – with the cooperation and partnerships pillar of Erasmus+ programme is welcome.
