Dear EuroScitizen members,

It is with great pleasure to announce the first workshop on the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in Belgrade, Serbia, organized by the Institute for Biological Research “Siniša Stanković” University of Belgrade.

If you are interested in becoming an ambassador of the RRI concept in the EuroScitizen network and are willing to co-construct a RRI culture by formulating the best principles and activities tailored for specific WGs of our action, please apply to participate in this workshop. We will work together and ensure that each RRI ambassador will be able to use developed tools and train other WG members about the importance of RRI in their work.
