In this course you will evaluate your own project in regards of RRI dimensions in a group of 4-5 people. You should evaluate which RRI dimensions are relevant and how these are reflected in your project, if they exist. The RRI dimensions are:

  • ethics
  • gender equality
  • open access
  • governance
  • public engagement
  • science education


You get into groups of 4-5 people. You should evaluate a project where you were/are part of it and you think that it could be improved in regards to RRI aspects. It can be an ongoing or finished project. At the end, you will be asked to review a project from another group. During the semester you have four meetings

  1. Finding group and choose project
  2. Present project details (pitch)
  3. Present proposal for funding
  4. Present critical review

First, you hand in a project details (1 page) which should contain a short description, goals, and results. This will be presented in a pitch (approx. 5 minutes without any slides). In the second phase, you should write a proposal for funding (approx. 2500 words). In the 3rd meeting all groups will present their proposal (approx. 15 min presentation + 15 min QA). After the presentation you will review the proposal from another group. The result will be also presented in a separate meeting .

At the end of the semester, you will hand in the revised proposal as final submission.

Benötigte/Empfehlenswerte Vorkenntnisse

It is recommended to do this course in parallel with TU Wien:Responsible Research and Innovation VU (Purgathofer). Since you will get to learn the RR dimensions in the VU.


Only the meetings, where you present your results. The first two meetings are kept rather short (1 1/2 hours each). For the presentation of proposals and critical reviews, it depends on how many groups there are. But this take mostly a whole afternoon (approx. 4 hours)

Prüfung, Benotung

The grades will be calculated based on your proposal, presentation and revised proposal.

Dauer der Zeugnisausstellung

Submission of proposal: 15.02.2018, Certificate: 07.03.2018


Overall, I think that this course is not very time consuming, since there is no really mandatory presence phase and no written exam at the end. However, you need to coordinate with your group members on writing the proposal - this should not be underestimated. It highly depends on your group (if you know each other, how many of you knows the project etc.)
