For us as a scientific funding agency, the main interface for including RRI principles is our "Funding Guidelines" which specifies funding instruments, funding criteria and selection procedures. As the funding guidelines are due for an update, this provides the opportunity to take into consideration RRI principles (especially open access and open science) and their potential inclusion at the end of this process.

The Co-Change lab allows for the discussion of, experimentation with and implementation of RRI principles and practices in the funding guidelines and WWTF procedures. We already talked to researchers and other funding organizations about trends and their experiences and had a first exchange with our internal decision body.

We will continue with the exchange with other change labs in the consortium, further experts and internal decision bodies.

Here you find a summary of the work of this Change Lab.
